NIH Asthma Guidelines Will Leave Sufferers Breathing Easier This Spring
Date:3/14/2008

this spring allergy season, it will be critical for patients to understand what their allergic triggers are and how to avoid those allergens," said Dr. Mitchell. "By accurately diagnosing allergies, healthcare providers can recommend avoidance strategies, so that patients can minimize their exposure to triggers, which collectively are responsible for pushing them over their allergic threshold and intensifying asthma symptoms."

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, approximately 23 million Americans have asthma and more than seven million of these are children, making it one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. While the number of asthma-related deaths has declined in recent years, asthma remains the cause for nearly two million emergency room visits annually, resulting in a significant economic burden on our healthcare system.

"Knowledge gained from allergy testing allows asthma patients to make necessary adjustments to their environment or diet to decrease their risk for asthma attacks and subsequent hospitalizations," said Dr. Mitchell.

ImmunoCAP was the first allergy test to be cleared by the FDA as a truly quantitative test for pinpointing allergens and allergy blood testing is recognized by the National Institutes of Health for the management of patients with asthma. The ImmunoCAP technology works by measuring IgE antibodies to food, indoor and outdoor allergens in a small sample of blood. Specific IgE is produced as a result of sensitization to an allergen and increases with exposure to that substance.

Phadia AB, headquartered in Uppsala, Sweden, is the world leader in in vitro IgE diagnostic research and product development. Its U.S. affiliate is in Portage, Michigan.
