Scientists have established causes of allergic reactions in Moscow children

Moscow doctors have determined which allergens are most often reacted to by the children and adolescents under 17 who live in the metropolis. Intolerances to egg white, cow’s milk and cats skin particles were the most often found among the 513 participants in the study, each of which have showed sensitivity to at least one antigen. The authors of the study showed also how the occurrence of allergic reactions to specific objects varies with age. The results of the work will increase the effectiveness of diagnosis for small patients and their treatment.

Scientists conducted an analysis of immunoglobulins — proteins, which react to allergens — in 513 children of different ages and found that there are different reactions to allergens in different age groups. The youngest children, up to three years old, are more likely to have allergic reactions to egg white and cow’s milk, while older children, of 13−17 years old, more often react to plant pollen.

Scientists hope that their work will help determine the causes of an allergic reaction in a particular child more effectively. This, in turn, will allow to choose the right treatment more quickly.

The scientific article is published in the journal PLOS ONE.
