Blomia tropicalis allergens are the most important mite allergens in tropical regions. Most of them only have 30-40% sequence identity with their Dermatophagoides counterparts and they share low IgE cross reactivity and exhibit different immunobiology. Unlike the pyroglyphid counterparts, Blo t 5 is the major allergen whereas Blo t 1 only has modest allergenicity.
