The prevalence of allergic disease has risen in the last few years in Mongolia. Artemisia species is an anemophilous genus included in the Compositae family and is widely spread the Mongolian temperate climate zone.  Pollen from the various Artemisia vulgaris (mugwort) is one of the main causes of allergic rhinitis in late summer and autumn in Mongolia, where the frequency of sensitization approximately 67% of 256 adult patients with sensitized plant pollen in 2010. We aim to determine the sensitivity for pollen allergy of mugwort and lamb’s quarters.


Method: The Research is been done under the department of Cellular biology Biochemistry of Pharmacy –Bio Medicine School, MNUMS with the help of “ Effect” Allergy – Asthma Hospital. During the study of research, one period descriptive research is done by studying the selected 191 patients who are diagnosed positive for the pollen allergens by skin pricking test and these group is chosen from the airborne allergic patients “Effect” Allergy – Asthma Hospital in 2010 -2012 census.

Results: We were chosen 191 subjects who are sensitized to pollen allergens. All of cases with age range between 3-74 years old and sex ratio is women and men are 42.3% and 57.7%. 169 (88,48%, 95% CI:) out of total subjects were sensitized to allergens of different plants pollen. the average diameters of wheals that had sensitized to mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) was 9.29±5.01 mm2, to lamb’s quarter was 4.85±2.15 mm2, to positive control histamine hydrochloride 0.1% was 4.89±1.33 mm2.

Conclusion: The sensitization of levels to Mugwort increased in last few years and the wheals size is increasing year by year.
