Lehrer et al. 1994.The authors looked at basidiospore reactivity in US
and Europe, as well as the relationship between basidiospore
allergy and respiratory disease. It was
found that reactivity was similar overall between US and Europe. It was also found that a relationship existed
between basidiospore reactivity and atopy, asthma, and asthma with
rhinitis. However, a cause and effect
relation was not established.
