Abstract

Exposure to cat allergen at school might exacerbate symptoms in asthmatic children with cat allergy. To study this, we identified 410 children, 6-12 yr of age, who were being treated for asthma (inhaled steroids and beta -agonists), were allergic to cats, and had no Eat at home. Peak expiratory flow (PEF), asthma symptoms, medication, fever and/or sore throat, and contactwith furred pets were recorded twice daily during the last week of summer holidays and the second and third weeks of school. The number of cat ownersin each class was recorded. Ninety-two children with asthma reported no contact with furred pets. Among these, children who attended classes with > 18% (median value) cat owners reported significantly decreased PEF, more days with asthma symptoms, and increased use of medication after school started. Those in classes with less than or equal to 18% cat owners reported no change. Children in classes with many cat owners ran a 9-fold increased riskof exacerbated asthma after school start compared with children in classeswith few cat owners, after adjusting for age, sex, and fever and/or sore throat. Thus, asthma symptoms, PEF, and the use of asthma medication in children with cat allergy may be affected by indirect cat exposure at school.
