Abstract

The aim of the present work has been the determination of the effectiveness of a primary prevention in the allergopathy induced by house dust mites weighing its benefits as regards asthmatic symptomatology. A sample of 56 subjects, aged 6 to 30 years, monosensitive to house dust mites (DTP and DTF) and with a diagnosis of bronchial asthma has been examined. The patients have entered a study plan whose purpose has been the evaluation of the effects of an environmental improvement on symptomatology. The diagnosis of asthma induced by house dust mites has been confirmed both by in vivo (Prick-test) and in vitro (PRIST and RAST) investigations. A follow-up after 3 months has shown that the hygienic measures have produced beneficial effects on symptomatology in as many as 22 patients (52.4%) out of a total of 42 who have put into practice the environmental improvement. These results encourage to proceed on this path in the choice of the therapy for those subjects affected by respiratory allergopathy to house dust mites.
