A plant species in the genus SAMBUCUS, known for the elderberry fruit. The plant is also a source of Sambucus nigra lectins and ribosome-inactivating protein. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

The Elder tree and other species of Sambucus comprise fast-growing small trees or large shrubs, 1-4 m tall. The leaves are compound and contain 5-11 leaflets, with finely or sharply toothed margins, 4-13 cm long and 2-6 cm wide.

Numerous species of Elder tree or Elderberry grow in Europe and North America. The Elder tree is native to south-eastern Canada and most of the United States except for the Great Basin and the Pacific Northwest, and is found in Britain, Europe, Iraq and Turkey.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis are possible following exposure to pollen from this tree; however, few specific studies have been reported to date. Patients suffering from allergic rhinoconjunctivitis and dyspnoea during summer may exhibit these symptoms after contact with flowers or dietary products of the Elder tree.
