Combined exposure to dog and indoor pollution: incident asthma in a high-risk birth cohort
| Contributor(s):: Carlsten, C., Brauer, M., Dimich-Ward, H., Dybuncio, A., Becker, A. B., Chan-Yeung, M.
The impact of single exposures on asthma development is better understood than the effect of multiple exposures. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of combined early exposure to dog allergen (Can-f1) plus indoor nitrogen dioxide (NO2) or environmental tobacco smoke...
Contact to cat or dog, allergies and parental education
| Contributor(s):: Apfelbacher, C. J., Ollert, M., Ring, J., Behrendt, H., Kramer, U.
Whether or not associations between animal contact and allergy/atopy are homogeneous across social strata has not yet been investigated. The aim of this study was to estimate the association between animal contact (cat, dog) and allergy/atopy in 6-yr-old school beginners, stratified by parental...

Effect of cat and dog ownership on sensitization and development of asthma among preteenage children
| Contributor(s):: Perzanowski, M. S., Ronmark, E., Platts-Mills, T. A. E., Lundback, B.
An inverse relationship has been proposed between exposure to high quantities of cat allergen at home and both asthma and cat allergy. First- and second-grade children from Lulea, Kiruna, and Pitea, Sweden participated in an asthma questionnaire study (n=3,431) and incidence was evaluated over...
