Abstract

Background: The Tetranychus urticae (two-spotted spider mite, TSM) is a spider mite commonly found on fruit trees, herbaceous plants, and greenhouse flowers. Objective: To evaluate the clinical significance of TSM-derived allergens in non-farmers with asthma living around pear orchards, and to assess the allergenic relationship with house dust mite. Methods: Skin prick tests with TSM were performed in 50 asthmatic non-farmers living around pear orchards. The serum TSM-specific IgE was measured inthe 16 asthmatics with a positive skin response to TSM. To diagnose TSM-induced asthma, specific bronchial challenges with TSM were performed in the 16 asthmatics. ELISA inhibition tests were performed to assess the allergenic cross-reactivity with house dust mites. Results: Ten of the 16 asthmatics with positive skin responses to TSM showed a significant bronchoconstriction following inhalation of TSM. Eight of the ten TSM-induced asthmatics had high serum TSM-specific IgE and one showed a positive skin response only to TSM. Their asthmatic symptoms were aggravated seasonally, especially in summer and early fall. On ELISA inhibitiontests, partial inhibitions with D. pteronyssinus antigens were noted in sera from five asthmatics with positive skin responses to both TSM and D. pteronyssinus, although no inhibition was noted in serum from an asthmatic with a positive skin response only to TSM. Conclusion: Tetranychus urticae may be an important allergen in asthmatic non-farmers living around pear orchards and TSM extracts contain species-specific allergens as well as commonly shared allergens with house dust mite.
