London: A new study has confirmed that children living on farms are significantly less likely to develop asthma than others. The study conducted by an international team of researchers including Dr. Markus Ege and Professor Erika von Mutius of Children``s Surgical Clinic in the Dr. von Hauner Children``s Hospital (Medical Center of the University of Munich), shows that exposure to a greater variety of microorganisms on the farm makes children less susceptible to asthma.The results have broad implications for the prevention of asthma in other sectors of the population."We have a long way to go before we can present new preventive measures, but at least we now have candidates for the development of a vaccine,” said Ege.
