Asthma: House Dust mite – Chronic model

Chronic exposure to House Dust mite (HDM) is a clinically relevant allergen associated with allergic disorders such as asthma. Chronic HDM exposure induces allergic responses such as AHR, BAL eosinophilia, allergic cytokines and raised systemic IgE as well as histopathological changes and airway remodelling.

Validated positive controls in this model include prednisolone, dexamethasone and roflumilast.
