Secretary IgA is a key element of intestinal immunity. Low levels of secretory IgA (SIgA) and development of allergy in infants were often reported, but it is not in adults. Saliva and serum were simultaneously analyzed from 20 adult patients with Cedar pollinosis aged 22-53 years and 22 non-allergic control adults aged 25-65 years. The mean salivary level of SIgA for JCP patients was significantly lower than the value for control subjects (58.1 ± 8.8 ug/ml vs. 68.6 ± 12.1 ug/ml). On the contrary, Cedar pollen specific IgE in the serum was 11.5 UA/ml, 4.05, 23.1, respectively (median, 25th-75th percentile) in pollinosis group, while it was <0.34 UA/ml (detection limit) in control group. Low levels of salivary SIgA in adults was associated with increased allergic manifestations.
