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… CONTINUE READING
