House Dust Mite Test On Wheezy Toddlers Can Predict Asthma in Teens

Toddlers aged between one and two years,  who tested positive in a skin prick test to house dust mites, have a higher risk of getting asthma  later in life with 75% developing asthma at aged 12 compared to 36% of children who tested negative. It is hoped the study  by the University of Melbourne, that followed 620 children, from families with history of allergies, from birth to 12 years old  will help to identify high risk groups and help investigate methods of asthma prevention in the future.
