  1. Inhaled aerollergen and storage mite reactivity in a Wisconsin farmer nested case-control study.

    Article - En anglais

    A nested case-control study was undertaken to assess the role of antibody (Ab) to a panel of antigens associated with hypersensitivity pneumonitis in the development of lung disease among Wisconsin dairy farmers.

    Immunologic reactivity to a panel of inhaled allergens was assessed in the Ab+ cases and compared to the Ab+ control, Ab- control, and Ab- blue-collar control subjects by skin tests, RAST assays, and a modified American Thoracic Society questionnaire.

    The most prevalent allergens among the cases as determined by either skin test or RAST assays were the house dust mites (HDM) (21.6%), storage mites (11.2%), grain smuts (11.2%), Cladosporium (7.5%), Aspergillus (6.0%), and cattle (5.2%).
