1st October, 2012, Washington DC: When kids suffer from asthma or allergies induced by dust mites, searching for relief appears to be a tough task. Now, scientists claim that 3 years allergy shots would provide a long term check of allergic asthma.
Allergic kids react to proteins within the faeces and bodies of the mites and these particles are generally found in stuffed animals, carpeting, mattresses, pillows and upholstered furniture. According to researchers, there might be around 19000 dust mites in just one gram dust.
Lead researcher Iwona Stelmach of ACAAI (American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology) told that the recommended time of immunotherapy for long term effectivity has been 3 to 5 years. Their research reveals that 3 years in an adequate time for the handling of childhood asthma connected with house dust mites and a extra 2 years includes no clinical benefits.
The experiment has discovered that fifty percent kids with asthma because of dust mites received remission after 3 years of treatment, with reduced or even no controller medications required at that time.
