Data on prevalence and risk factors associated with Toxocara spp infection, atopy and asthma development in Northeast Brazilian school children

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

In the present article, we provide shortly, data on risk factors for acquiring Toxocara spp. infection and investigate possible associations between this infection with atopy and asthma in school children of a small town and its semi-rural areas of Northeast Brazil. The data set are composed by demographic, social and home environment variables. The detection of anti-Toxocara spp. IgG and specific IgE to aeroallergens was determined by ELISA and ImmunocAP/Phadiatrope systems, respectively. The data presented in this article are related to the article entitled “Risk factors for Toxocara spp. seroprevalence and its association with atopy and asthma phenotypes in school-age children in a small town and semi-rural areas of Northeast Brazil” (M.B. Silva, A.L. Amor, L.N. Santos, A.A. Galvão, A.V. Oviedo Vera, E.S. Silva et al., 2016) [1].

f0005: ORs and 95% confident intervals calculated by logistic analysis model adjusted by age, sex, contact with dogs and cats, school location, maternal schooling, family income and helminth infection.

Mentions: The data demonstrate obtained in this work is summarized in Fig. 1 and Table 1. Fig. 1 shows that being male and having contact with dogs and cats were risk factors for Toxocara spp. infection among other variables studied. Table 1 shows the analysis of Toxocara spp. infection as risk factors for atopy and asthma. We found that Toxocara spp. seropositive school age children were more prone to have positive serum aeroallergen-specific IgE.
