The major allergen in house dust is derived from mites. Past research has suggested that the control of mites should be an integral part of the treatment given to people who are sensitive to them, such as asthma sufferers. In this week's BMJ Dr Peter G tzsche from the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Denmark, along with colleagues from Sweden and Cardiff, report that current chemical and physical methods aimed at reducing exposure to allergens from dust mites seem to be ineffective and they do not recommend them as prophylactic treatment for asthma patients sensitive to mites.
