House dust mite (Dermatophagoides farinae) allergen levels in three different sources from homes of patients with allergy to house dust mite



House dust mite (Dermatophagoides farinae) allergen levels in three different sources from homes of patients with allergy to house dust mite



Clinical Reviews in Allergy 6(1): 35-43



D. farinae allergen was assayed by RAST from 3 sources from each of 6 homes in Marshfield, Wisconsin. These sources were: (1) vacuum cleaner bags, (2) stuffed (toy) animals and (3) air filters. An additional 14 vacuum cleaner bags and 4 stuffed animals were also assayed. Detectable levels of D. farinae antigen were found in all extracts. Although data from (1) varied 5-fold and from (3) varied only 2-fold, these paired samples from the 6 homes showed a correlation (0.70), even though with so small a set of samples this was not statistically significant. It nevertheless suggests that sampling of this kind might, if extended further, serve for allergen exposure evaluation.
