Summary
Exposure for various bio-chemical factors, which are regarded as potent allergens is growing rapidly in human population. The reasons are mainly connected with working environment and hazzards at workplace, and, on the other hand, with home environment. What’s more important, there is a rapidly growing incidence of allergic reactions to many biological (i.e. ascares, fungi, cockroaches etc.) factors, associated directly with our place of living. Additionally hypersensitivity can be released or enhanced by various other environmental factors, especially by air pollution. The aim of this study was to summarize the most frequent potential allergens, which started to appear in our homes.

K e y w o r d s: allergens – home environment.
