  1. Cow hair allergen (Bos d 2) content in house dust : Correlation with sensitization in farmers with cow hair asthma.

    Article - En anglais

    Farmers (N=45) suffering from occupational cow hair asthma were visited at home to evaluate the concentration of cow hair major allergen Bos d 2 in the house dust and to correlate these results with measures of avoidance, degree of sensitization, clinical symptoms, and lung function.

    Bos d 2 was determined by rocket immunoelectrophoresis.

    In dust oftiles and linoleum Bos d 2 was difficult to detect, whereas dust samples of carpets often contained high concentrations of the allergen (50-520 mug/g fine dust).

    Bos d 2 levels were significantly higher when barn and living quarters were in the same building.

    Concentrations of cow hair-specific IgE were correlated with concentrations of Bos d 2 in house dust samples.

    A concentration of 20-29 mug Bos d 2 per gram of house dust could be established as threshold value for relevant IgE sensitization.

    Avoiding the barn is not a sufficient avoidance measure for cow hair asthmatics if the partner continues cattle farming.

    Cessation of cattle farming and avoiding the former barn results in a marked reduction in Bos d 2 concentration in living quarters, a decreased degree of sensitization, and a reduced symptom score.

    Farmers with cow hair asthma should avoid cattle and thoroughly clean all carpets in the living quarters to avoid continuous cow allergen exposure.
