Summary

Investigation of the effect of Grazax (grass tablet) on asthma prevention in children with grass pollen allergy

Description

Investigation of the effect of Grazax (ALK produced grass tablet) on asthma prevention in children with grass pollen allergy.

Children in the age of 6-12 years will be randomised to either placebo or Grazax treatment. Grazax has been approved for treatment of grass pollen allergy in adults and children, diagnosed with a positive skin prick test and/or specific immunoglobulin (IgE) test to grass pollen and with clinically relevant symptoms. This study will explore prevention of asthma in children with grass pollen induced allergy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Allergic rhinitis that occurs at the same time every year. It is characterized by acute CONJUNCTIVITIS with lacrimation and ITCHING, and regarded as an allergic condition triggered by specific ALLERGENS.

A group of symptoms that are two- to three-fold more common in those who work in large, energy-efficient buildings, associated with an increased frequency of headaches, lethargy, and dry skin. Clinical manifestations include hypersensitivity pneumonitis (ALVEOLITIS, EXTRINSIC ALLERGIC); allergic rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL); ASTHMA; infections, skin eruptions, and mucous membrane irritation syndromes. Current usage tends to be less restrictive with regard to the type of building and delineation of complaints. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

A form of non-allergic rhinitis that is characterized by nasal congestion and posterior pharyngeal drainage.

A long-acting, non-sedative antihistaminic used in the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis, asthma, allergic conjunctivitis, and chronic idiopathic urticaria. The drug is well tolerated and has no anticholinergic side effects.

Antigens from the house dust mites (DERMATOPHAGOIDES), mainly D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus. They are proteins, found in mite feces or mite extracts, that can cause ASTHMA and other allergic diseases such as perennial rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL) and atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC). More than 11 groups of Dermatophagoides ALLERGENS have been defined. Group I allergens, such as Der f I and Der p I from the above two species, are among the strongest mite immunogens in humans.
