House dust mites in Hawaii



House dust mites in Hawaii



Annals of Allergy 46(4): 197-200



The role of house dust and its principal allergen, the mite, in asthma in humans throughout the world is documented and a limited study shows Acari to be ubiquitous, in high concentration and of the suitable genus and species to act as a respiratory allergen. Dust was collected from 41 homes distributed in valleys, on ridges, near freeways and along shorelines in Hawaii. Acari were found in 40 of the 41 beds of these homes in high concentration; Dermatophagoides represented 92.6%; all were D. pteronyssinus.
