The aim of this study was the assessment of plasma ions concentrations (magnesium, calcium, zinc, copper and sodium) in patients with seasonal rhinitis during allergen exposure and following pollen season. The study group comprised forty one patients (15 women and 26 men) aged between 19-43±26.9 with seasonal rhinitis. The control group consisted of 21 healthy volunteers (12 women and 9 men) aged between 21-42±27.1. Ions concentrations were determined by means of an atomic absorption spectrometr. Magnesium concentration levels were higher during pollen season than following allergen exposure. Sodium and calcium concentration levels were significantly higher following pollen season in comparison to values obtained during allergen exposure. There were no significantly seasonal differences in zinc and copper concentration levels in patients with pollinosis. The presented study demonstrates that magnesium, calcium and sodium may play an important role in allergic processes. A precise recognition of their importance in immunological reactions would expand these range of therapy.
