Abstract Group 1 and 2 allergens are probably the most important mite allergens. Some mite allergens, such as tropomyosin, are widely cross-reactive. The prevalence of sensitization to invertebrates cannot be based solely on skin test or serologic data with the allergen extracts currently available. Purified (recombinant) allergens, selected for low cross-reactivity, are urgently needed.
