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].

Mentions: The data presented in this paper investigated the risk factors to acquire Toxocara spp. infection and its association with atopy and asthma [1]. It reports the data obtained in a study conducted in a small city of Northeast Brazil with 791 school-age children. Students underwent an epidemiological survey answered by their parents on sanitation, social class and risk factors for toxocariasis. Moreover, they answered an ISAAC Portuguese-adapted questionnaire for asthma diagnosis [2]. Blood collection was performed to evaluate the levels of allergen-specific IgE and IgG anti-Toxocara spp. reactivity. Univariable and multivariable analyses were used to analyzeToxocara spp. infection risk factors and the association of this infection with atopy and asthma phenotypes. The variables investigated were: gender, age, maternal schooling, income, school location, contact with dog and cat (Fig. 2).
