JACI Article Finds Early-life Exposure to Pest and Pet Allergens May Reduce Asthma in Inner-city Children
The AAAAI issued a press release on The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology article “Early-life home environment and the risk of asthma among inner-city children.” Researchers found evidence that early-life exposure to cockroach, mouse and cat allergens decreased the rate of asthma in inner-city children.
The article suggested that in the inner-city setting, indoor pests or pets and certain bacteria associated with them may provide biologic signals that promote normal lung and immunologic development. Interventions to reduce prenatal smoking and maternal stress and depression during pregnancy and infancy may hold more promise for asthma prevention.
