Inhalant allergy in asthmatic children: skin prick test, radioallergosorbent test and chemiluminescent assay compared with allergen levels in their mattress dusts

Mattress dusts from the beds of 51 asthmatic children with positive skin tests to house dust mite were assayed for Der p I, Fel d I and certain viable fungi. The results of skin tests to grass, cat, dog, Alternaria, Aspergillus, Cladosporium and Penicillium, radioallergosorbent tests to cat, mite, dog and grass and the chemiluminescent assay were compared and correlations made with allergen concentrations in the dust. The sensitivity of the three tests appeared comparable (percentage agreement = 54.5-94), however, an increased level of allergen in the mattress dust was not a good indicator of the degree of sensitization of the child (p greater than 0.05).
