According to UPI, an international research team in Europe has identified the molecular origins of the allergy to house dust mites. The research team was comprised of scientists from Berlin and Vienna, and statisticians from Italy. Investigators examined blood samples collected over a 20-year period from a cohort of 722 German children born in 1990. First author Daniela Posa said in a press release, “Mite allergy develops in childhood like an avalanche. It starts early with only one or a very few molecules and then grows to many.” The research team found that IgE-antibodies against three dust mite molecules appeared early on in childhood, often before the disease developed. Children who continued to produce the molecule were more at risk of developing allergic rhinitis and asthma.
