Bhopal: Exposure to allergens like dust particles, pets and insects early in childhood helps to develop strong immunity against allergies, according to a study.

A research conducted by Bhopal-based Dr Syed Arham claimed that if a child does not get in contact with Thymus Tonsils or Peyer`s patches between the age of 02-12 years, then the chances of developing immunity from these diseases is very less as compared to those who came in contact with such allergens.

He said during his research on 30 children for the last two-decades for studying natural immunotherapy effects, it was found that those who remain in contact with natural allergens like dust particles, dandruff, pets, mosquitoes, insects and bees develop strong immunity at par with children living in rural areas.

Dr Arham said because of wrong notions about the allergies world over, it has spread in a big way in the world especially in the western countries.

The doctor claimed that he had presented his findings in the form of research papers in number of international conferences like Asian Pacific Society of Respirology, Shanghai-2011, National Conference of Indian College of Allergy Asthama and Applied Immunology-2011 and World Allergy Organisation International Scientific Conference 2012, among others.

Dr Ahram will also present two research papers in the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology-2013 in Milan, Italy.
