Example text

The pattern of atopic sensitization is associated with the development of asthma in childhood. J Allergy Clin Immunol, 108:709–714. The development of allergen sensitization requires exposure to that allergen. Once sensitization has occurred, repeated exposure to that allergen is likely to trigger symptoms. Although house dust mite levels are related to mite sensitization and wheezy illness, rising house dust mite levels are not felt to account for the general increased prevalence of atopic disease.

A wheal and flare reaction is seen within minutes. The test is judged positive if the wheal is 3 mm greater than the saline control after 15 minutes. 12 Sensitization to aeroallergens is a useful predictor of asthma in later childhood. This graph illustrates how the addition of specific IgE to a clinical scoring system (derived from 3–4 year olds, wheezing, familial allergy for pollen) considerably refines the prediction of which child will develop asthma. Straight lines represent 3-yearold child with a family history after a negative (1) and positive (2) IgE test (cat, dog and/or house dust mite).

Interactions between these variants increase the risk of asthma and atopy further. 7)3. Five novel candidate genes have been identified by positional cloning strategies over the past 3 years. 8). These genes (ADAM33, DPP110, PHF11, GPRA, HLA-G) are not involved in known asthma pathways. These genetic studies offer new insights into asthma pathogenesis, suggesting that pathways relating to tissue growth and remodelling may be important. The genetic contribution to asthma is complex and involves polygenic inheritance and genetic heterogeneity (different combinations of genes causing asthmatic traits in different individuals).
