  1. Pet ownership in the UAE : its effect on allergy and respiratory symptoms.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this paper was to study the effect of pets and other domestic animals on bronchial asthma among United Arab Emirates (UAE) schoolchildren aged 6-14 years.

    A cross-sectional study of 850 schoolchildren living in both urban and rural areas (average age 9.36 ± 2.11 years, 46.8% boys and 53.2% girls) was conducted using self-administered questionnaires between October 1992 and May 19.93.

    Prevalence rate for asthma, rhinitis, wheeze, cough, and eczema in children from families with and without animals were investigated.

    A total of 40.7% of families studied were found to keep animals in their homes.

    Children from families with animals were found to have a significantly higher prevalence rate of respiratory symptoms than those without.

    The prevalence rate for asthma in children with animals was found to be twice that of children without (RR : 2.03 ; 95% Cl : 1.40-2.95).

    The risk of having chronic cough (RR : 1.93 ; 95% Cl : 1.21-3.10), breathlessness/chest tightness (RR : 2.53 ; 95% Cl : 1.59-4.02), chronic wheeze (RR : 2.10 ; 95% Cl : 1.20-3.67), allergic rhinitis (RR : 1.53 ; 95% Cl : 1. 17-2.00) was significantly higher in children with animals than in children without.

    Similarly, the risk of having eczema (RR : 2.55 ; 95%, Cl : 1.74-3.75) was significantly higher among children with animals than among those without.
