(Hokkaido University) In collaboration with teams from the Czech Republic and Japan, researchers from the Institut Pasteur, (AP-HP), and (AP-HM) have identified the likely origin of the cross-reactivity between cypress pollen, peaches and citrus fruits.

This discovery, published in JACI on Aug. 3, paves the way for the development of novel allergy diagnostic tests.
