Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease that affects 300 million people of all ages worldwide (1). It is caused by exposure to allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, pollen, or mold, and characterized by airflow obstruction and bronchospasm. House dust mite (HDM) is the most common asthma allergen, which affects up to 85% of asthma patients (2, 3). Of the two main mite species, Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Der p) and Dermatophagoides farinae (Der f), more than 20 types of HDM allergens are defined based on sequential and functional homologies. Among those HDM allergens, group 1 (Der 1) and group 2 (Der 2) dominate overall allergic responses in patients and are the most commonly researched allergens (4-6).
To study the immune response to allergens and allergen-specific pathological effects in mouse models, Chondrex, Inc. provides a mouse IgG anti-HDM antibody assay kit (Catalog # 3030). Other antibody subtype ELISA kits against HDM Der 1 and Der 2 are currently in development. Please contact Chondrex, Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
