Mite allergen exposure is essential for the process of specific allergic sensitization.
However it is not clear whether incidence of specific sensitization at school age depends on the level of mite antigen exposure.
Therefore the relationship between mite allergen exposure and incidence of specific sensitization was investigated.
Eighteen hundred twelve primary school children were enrolled in a population-based 2-year follow-up study.
In three consecutive skin prick tests (SPTs), each 12 months apart, sensitization to Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Dpt) and six non-Dpt allergens was ascertained.
