Neonatal vaccination of mice with bacteria prevents cockroach ...

The hygiene hypothesis proposes that a 20th century surge in allergies and asthma is because people are living in increasingly hygienic environments. Rather than the rural farm life of the agricultural 19th century, families live in urban and suburban communities, have fewer children who can exchange infections, bathe and wash their hands more frequently, and use antibiotics excessively. This all means reduced infant exposure to microbes that would have tempered excessive immune reactions, such as asthma, later in life.

In a third publication relating to allergic lung responses, University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers have used an asthma model that lends support to the hygiene hypothesis. They report that asthma caused by adult exposure to cockroach detritus is blocked in mice that were vaccinated as newborns with a particular bacteria.

In this latest study published in The Journal of Immunology , the John Kearney, Ph.D., team has shown that neonatal vaccination using Enterobacter bacteria that express alpha-1,3-glucan molecules on their surface prevents German cockroach-induced asthma as adults. Neonatal vaccination with purified alpha-1,3-glucan was also protective, but vaccination using a strain of Enterobacter that does not express alpha-1,3-glucan was not protective.

Can mild asthma in an adult go away completely?

When I was 18, I had mild asthma symptoms (shortness of breath and wheezing ) for a period of about 2-3 weeks, during which I used an inhaler. Same thing happened when I was 20. I am now 24, and I havent had any symptoms since. How likely is it going


i have asthma also...i don't think it really ever goes away i think you can get it under control and once you do if you handle it will it may never bother you again but i'm sure there are things that can trigger it again...just be careful and talk to

well, you may never get the symptoms like that again, but it may come again tomorrow. the thing is, when you dont have asthma for along time, that means that your asthma it "sleeping", but can come back again.
