R.I.A. dosages of specific IgE antibodies to Dermatophagoides-pteronyssinus, Dermatophagoides-farinae (house dust mites), Acarus-siro, Lepidoglyphus-destructor, and Tyrophagus-putrescentiae (storage mites) in 467 unselected patients were statistically analyzed. A significant noncorrelation between specific IgE antibodies to storage mites and those to house dust mites has been found, suggesting that storage mites have their own allergenic specificity.
