Biology, host relations, and epidemiology of Sarcoptes scabiei.
  • L. Arlian
  • Biology
    Annual review of entomology
  • 1989
TLDR
Scabies continues to be an important parasitic disease of humans, and other mammals, and much more research is needed to understand fully the occurrence, transmission, and epidemiology of both human and animal scabies.
The biology of dust mites and the remediation of mite allergens in allergic disease.
TLDR
Key aspects of the biology of dust mites, the properties of mite allergens, recommendations for reducing mite and mite allergen concentrations in homes, and practical recommendations for treatment are reviewed.
A review of Sarcoptes scabiei: past, present and future
TLDR
Advances toward the development of a diagnostic blood test to detect a scabies infection and a vaccine to protect susceptible populations from becoming infected, or at least limiting the transmission of the disease, are presented.
Genetically distinct dog-derived and human-derived Sarcoptes scabiei in scabies-endemic communities in northern Australia.
TLDR
Multilocus analysis of 712 scabies mites from human and dog hosts in Ohio, Panama and Aboriginal communities in northern Australia now shows that genotypes of dog-derived and human-derived scabies cluster by host species rather than by geographic location.
Water balance and humidity requirements of house dust mites
  • L. Arlian
  • Environmental Science
    Experimental & Applied Acarology
  • 1 November 1992
TLDR
Mites feed, multiply, and produce more fecal matter at higher RHs than at lower ones, and feeding rate and allergen production is directly influenced by RH.
Sarcoptes scabiei: the circulating antibody response and induced immunity to scabies.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hosts infested with scabies develop immunity (resistance) to reinfestation and suggested that vaccination with specific scabies tissue containing the relevant antigens or recombinant relevant antIGens could enhance the cell-mediated response to protect the hosts against natural infestations.
Arthropod allergens and human health.
  • L. Arlian
  • Biology, Medicine
    Annual review of entomology
  • 28 November 2003
TLDR
This chapter reviews the insects and mites that induce allergic reactions in humans and describes the methods for naming allergens.
Dust mite allergens: Ecology and distribution
TLDR
Mites are present in homes in humid geographical areas and are rare or absent in drier climates unless humidity is artificially raised, generally speaking, dust mite allergen levels are low in public buildings and transportation compared to levels in homes.
