Diesel exhaust particle exposure increases risk of aeroallergen sensitization in high risk children

December 16, 2014

Researchers found diesel exhaust particle exposure in early childhood enhances aeroallergen sensitization and that allergic rhinitis in 4-year-old children was associated with aeroallergen wheal area size at 2 and 3 years of age.

Infants born to aeroallergen sensitized parents were evaluated annually with skin prick tests to 15 aeroallergens with measurement of wheal areas.
