Standardisation of allergen products: 4. Validation of a candidate European Pharmacopoeia standard method for quantification of major grass pollen allergen Phl p 5

The aim of the BSP090 project is the establishment of European Pharmacopoeia Chemical Reference Substances (CRSs) in combination with corresponding standard ELISA methods for quantification of major allergens in allergen products. Here, we present data of a Phl p 5-specific sandwich ELISA that proved suitable for the quantification of Phl p 5, one of the major Timothy grass (Phleum pratense) pollen allergens.
