Allergen specific immunoglobulin E (spIgE) in the nasal mucosa is a biomarker for local allergic rhinitis. Inferior turbinate tissue biopsy is a sensitive method to detect nasal spIgE but is invasive. Nasal brushing is a relatively noninvasive method to detect nasal spIgE that may be of comparable diagnostic utility.

Nasal brushing constituted an easy and relatively noninvasive method to sample nasal epithelium. This sampling technique was comparable with an inferior turbinate tissue biopsy and may be developed as a diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of local allergic rhinitis.
