Objective measures are collected in the form of settled dust using dust fall collectors with electrostatic cloths and vacuum samples of floor and mattress dust. Dust will be analysed for house dust mite allergen, bacterial endotoxin (from Gram negative bacteria) and fungal beta glucans. All three of these measures have been associated both with the development and maintenance of asthma and with damp environments. In addition we will undertake quantitative PCR on the settled dust samples to assess the range and quantity of airborne fungi in each home. These measures are designed to evaluate possible mechanisms for any differences that we may observe between homes of cases and controls.
