The Siriraj Dust Mite Centre for Services and Research recently said it would produce dust mite on semi-industrial scale which will further be used as the initial substance in mite allergen vaccine, after more than 20 years of research.

 

They were granted mite allergen vaccine certification by the Thai Food and Drug Administration on October 31. The mite centre now provides the know-how to the private sector and aims to become the central hub for R&D on dust mite allergy in the Asean region to produce more mite allergen-friendly products or suggest improvement or advice to the private sector or nongovernmental organisations, such as anti-mite mattress and air-conditioning.

 

Prof Dr Anchalee Tungtrongchitr, the director, said that “Another service provided here is anti-mite effectiveness in product testing, to protect consumers from pseudo-science-backed products.”

Does anyone here have dust mite allergy? I think they must be in all bedding & cushions.

Until  tested  which  can be a tedious process of  elimination. And in that  process multiple possibles can be identified. For the sufferer  it then becomes a difficult  process  to  know which  such allergenic triggers  are primary prevalent.

But  yes,  dust  mites  are  very  common.

And  often  people  who declare  an allergy to domestic  pets are  actually  allergic  to  the dust mites  they have in their   hair  or  fur.

Yet allergies  are  not simplistic or  even  understood. Consider the problem  of  those  women  who "apparently" are  allergic  to  the  semen of their  husbands.
