The benefits of a leukotriene modifier on allergen-induced cutaneous responses have not been studied in children. We hypothesized that a leukotriene-receptor antagonist would provide protection against allergen-induced early and/or late phase cutaneous responses in susceptible children. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over study in 6- to 15-year-old house dust mite allergic children, we compared the benefit of either montelukast or a matching placebo for 2 days on… CONTINUE READING
