General Information

The Allergome web site has been designed to supply information on Allergenic Molecules (Allergens).
Identified molecules causing an IgE-mediated (allergic, atopic) disease (anaphylaxis, asthma, atopic dermatitis, conjunctivitis, rhinitis, urticaria) have been selected from international scientific journals and from web-based resources.
It also contains data on allergenic sources whether they have identified molecules or not.

Allergenic Molecules and sources are included in the Allergome Database independently from the sources (animals or plants) and their tissues (dander, fruit, pollen, seed, spores, venoms, whole bodies etc.), or the routes of exposure (contact, ingestion, inhalation, injection etc.).
A Monograph is dedicated to each Allergenic Molecule (BLUE monographs).

The Monograph is divided in three parts
  • The "General Information" page contains data for the identification of the Allergen and its relationship with other Allergens within the Allergome.
  • The "Native Form" page contains data on allergenicity of the allergen in its natural conformation.
  • The "Recombinant Form" page/s contains data on allergenicity of the allergen obtained by means of molecular biology techniques. "Recombinant Form" pages are named by the expression vector used to produce the recombinant molecule.
The Allergome is based on the literature published since the early sixties. The current base is 5800 selected papers (November 2004) and is continuously updated.
Before data entry, experienced reviewers select information from scientific papers.
Low-molecular weight compounds causing non-IgE-mediated allergic diseases (e.g. contact dermatitis, drug allergy), or molecules causing non-IgE immune mediated diseases (e.g. celiac disease) are not included. Any other substance causing pseudo-allergic reactions or intolerance (e.g. food intolerance) is excluded from the Allergome database.


Most of the Allergenic Molecules are officially named by the International Union of the Immunological Societies (IUIS) Allergen Nomenclature Sub-Committee and marked in the Allergome database. The updates list is available on the IUIS Allergen Nomenclature web site.
Criteria for the inclusion of a newly discovered allergenic molecule within the official list are available on international allergy journals and are recognized by the WHO.
All the Allergens and data available in the IUIS Allergen Nomenclature Sub-Committee web site are currently present in the Allergome Database.
The Allergome Database is searchable using the IUIS filter in order to have only officially recognized molecules as a search result.


On the basis of stringent immunological and allergological criteria, carefully characterized Allergens that are not listed in the IUIS Allergen Nomenclature are included in the Allergome Database. This further expands classified data available from the scientific literature.
The Allergome Database is searchable using the Allergenic Molecule filter. It includes all the identified and characterized Allergenic Molecules including replica rolex those in the official IUIS Allergen Nomenclature list.


Allergenic sources without identified Allergenic Molecules are included in the Allergome Database (RED monographs).
This section mainly supplies references and little data for rare allergens and for allergenic sources whose allergenic components have never been identified and characterized. References dealing with allergenic sources are added to papers currently selected for Allergenic Molecules documentation. This completes the scenario of information on IgE-sensitizing compounds that are replica omega potentially harmful for allergic subjects.
To supply data (reagents, prevalence) on allergenic sources having identified allergens monographs have been added (GREEN monographs).
The search on allergenic sources (RED and GREEN monographs) is included in any search if neither the IUIS filter nor the Allergenic molecule filter are activated.


The Allergome Database is mainly addressed to people working in the Allergy and Immunology fields.
The structure and the data available in the Allergome Database are useful for clinicians to easily approach this rapidly expanding field of knowledge, and for basic researchers to reach information generally spread on several sources.
To avoid redundancy of information, external links are provided for data available on other free web sites.

The Allergome e-Newsletter

A monthly issue of the Allergome e-Newsletter is sent to all the subscribers and email addresses in the mailing list.
You may register to receive the Allergome e-Newsletter using the MyAllergome tab in the Allergome home page.
The Allergome e-Newsletter list the new and modified monographs during the last month period. You may access the monographs directly from the Allergome e-Newsletter.
News, tips, and info on events dealing with the Allergenic molecules are reported in the Allergome e-Newsletter.



Allergome platform modules

The Allergome platform has developed several modules aiming to support specific purposes:
RefArray: it is a module created to ease the access to references stored in the new Allergome Reference Archive. The Allergome Reference Archive contains all the processed papers available from the literature, beyond PubMed citation. Data can be retrieved from the Allergome Reference Archive by using a number of optional filters, and by selecting the molecule/source of interest.
ReTiME: The "Real Time Monitoring of IgE sensitization" (ReTiME) module is a database created to acquire and store real time data. The ReTiME database is fully interfaced with the InterAll allergy e-record (see below). Data on IgE sensitization can be stored by any contributor willing to share his/her own data with the international scientific community. Data from the ReTiME database are displayed in each allergen monograph in a dedicated page. Contact us to know more.
InterAll: it is the allergy electronic record available for allergy/immunology clinical centers and research laboratories willing to replica handbags manage patients clinical and diagnostic data in a very easy and modern way, receive daily updates from the Allergome platform, and send and share data to feed the Allergome platform through the ReTiME platform. Contact us to know more.
AllergomeConsumer: the module has been established since 2009 to provide the consumer with food allergy problems with a simple and useful tool for information. Operational scope of AllergomeConsumer is to collect detailed information on ingredients for feeding present in products not only for human use, but even in a series of products like cosmetic, drugs, and animal food. The collection will deal with both industrial and artisanal products, try to encompass the whole spectrum of ingredients of food nature. AllergomeConsumer is a project linked with the Allergome platform.
Contact us to know more.



Collaborative studies using the Allergome database

Data available from the Allergome database can be used for any study dealing with allergens. Collaborative studies between international research groups and the Allergome team are encouraged.
A collaborative study has been established with the Institute of Immunology Bern, Inselspital, Bern, Switzerland in 2003. The updated list of allergenic molecules has been used to further expand the results of previously published data (Stadler MB, Stadler BM. FASEB J 2003;17(9):1141-3). Results of the collaborative study are now displayed in the "Sequence Motifs" section of involved allergenic molecules. A presentation of the ongoing study has been given by Prof. BM Stadler (Autoimmunity and allergy: A bioinformatic approach) and published in the proceeding of the 25th Symposium of the Collegium Internationale Allergologicum, held in Bornholm, Denmark, 2004.
Starting from 2007 the AllFam web pages are cross linked with the Allergome platform. The AllFam database is a resource for classifying allergens into protein families. The AllFam is released by the Biotechnology and Biochemical Diagnostics Group at the Department of Pathophysiology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria, headed by Heimo Breiteneder. The AllFam database is managed by Christian Radauer.

Since 2008 studies using Allergome resources started in collaboration with Dr. Norihiro Futamura, from the Plant Molecular Biology Laboratory, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, JAPAN, replica rolex uk and with Dr. Yang Liming, National Key Lab of Crop Genetics and Germplasm Enhancement, Nanjing Agricultural University, Nanjing, China.

Starting 2009 Allergome is supporting the FAST project.

Starting January 2011 allergen monographs in the Allergome platform are cross-referenced in the UniProt Knowledgebase.

Starting October 2012 the Allergome is collaborating with the University of Queensland, Australia.

Since November 2010 Allergy Data Laboratories launches an initiative for direct free donations for the Allergome project. The scope is to establish a robust financial support keeping the Allergome platform independent and free accessible to serve the International scientific community as it has established since the first Allergome release on the web in 2003.


The Allergome database is a free web site for users. Info and data available within the Allergome database are thought to be of general interest for the international scientific community. Any financial support to the Allergome project from public institutions, private individuals or companies is welcome.

If you need more information please do not hesitate to contact the Allergome administrator.

We greatly appreciate your feedback if you find any error in the allergenic molecule monograph data.

If you don't find what you expected in a search or you are aware of any identified allergen that is not in the Allergome database, please contact us.
