TLDR
These studies show that sensitization and exposure to CR is a major risk factor for hospital admission with asthma, particularly among uninsured black patients, which is the group with the highest mortality and morbidity from the disease.
Identification and characterization of important cockroach allergens.
A comparative study on cockroach and ovalbumin sensitizations and challenge responses in Hartley guinea-pigs.
Allergenic structures in cockroach hypersensitivity.
Akgenic structures in co&rowh hypersensitivity
TLDR
The tissues from which cockroach ullergens were derived were identified by use of serum IgE o/ ,jive patients with allergic rhinitis and bronchial usthma as a result of hypersensitivity to Germun cockroach as well as patients with cockroach hypersensitivity.
Deer ked-induced occupational allergic rhinoconjunctivitis.
Respiratory symptoms in insect breeders.
TLDR
Exposure to organic dusts below the levels for which there are UK workplace exposure limits can result in respiratory symptoms and sensitization, as judged by specific IgE, in workers potentially exposed to a variety of biological contaminants.
Bla g 3: a novel allergen of German cockroach identified using cockroach-specific avian single-chain variable fragment antibody.
Cloning of Cockroach Allergen, Bla g 4, Identifies Ligand Binding Proteins (or Calycins) as a Cause of IgE Antibody Responses (*)
TLDR
The results show that members of the calycin protein family can cause IgE antibody responses by inhalation or ingestion and are associated with asthma and food hypersensitivity.

A comparative study of prevalence of skin hypersensitivity to cockroach and house dust antigens.
TLDR
The results indicate that cockroach hypersensitivity is highly prevalent and thatcockroach antigen is an independent agent from house dust as a cause of immediate hypersensitivity reaction.

ASTHMA CAUSED BY THE GRAIN WEEVIL
TLDR
The grain weevil caused symptoms of allergic rhinitis and asthma in two laboratory workers, one after exposure to weevil dust for only six months and the other after three years, and may be a possible cause of baker's asthma which has not been previously considered.
Allergenic impact of inhaled arthropod material
TLDR
It is the opinion that arthropod allergies must be considered and investigated seriously in all patients with respiratory allergy that is not otherwise readily explained, particularly bronchial asthma.
Occupational asthma in a research centre breeding locusts
TLDR
IgG and IgE antibodies to the locust antigens were found to correlate significantly with both the degree of exposure and the presence of disease.
