A. Lewis ent aeroallergens, not simply housedust mite antigen. Nevertheless, evidence on the development of sensitivity to occupational allergens, which has provided an analogous model within which to look at the relationship between timing of exposure and onset of symptoms, suggests that sensitisation can occur in adults upon exposure to a new allergen [139]. A popUlation based study in Tuscon, Arizona, showing that within 6 years migrants into the area had an increased level of sensitation to local aero allergens to a similar level to that seen in the native population, provided further support for this suggestion [57].

R. A. Lewis infections may act to inhibit the development of allergic disease. Helminth parasites may have a similar action, and indeed the allergic response which is now responsible for so many unwanted allergic symptoms may once have conferred biological advantage in immunity against parasitic infections [223].
