Guayule natural rubber latex.
Guayule natural rubber latex. The results of a clinical laboratory study using serum pools from individuals suffering from life-threatening Type I tropical latex allergy indicate no detectable allergic reaction to commercial grade natural rubber latex derived from guayule. Guayule, a desert plant, is the only domestic source for natural rubber latex and it now promises to be a safe alternative for the 8-12% of healthcare workers and their patients who suffer from tropical latex allergy, according to the study.
