Mite asthma and residency. A case-control study on the impact of exposure to house-dust mites in dwellings



Mite asthma and residency. A case-control study on the impact of exposure to house-dust mites in dwellings



American Review of Respiratory Disease 128(2): 231-235



The occurrence of mites in house dust from the homes of 25 patients in Denmark with newly diagnosed asthma associated with hypersensitivity to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Trt.) was much greater than that in dust from houses of 75 randomly selected matched control subjects. The difference in exposure corresponded to a relative risk of about 7.0, and a clear dose-response relationship could be demonstrated.
