Mite antigen levels on regular cotton bed sheets in the partial encasing group are significantly lower than in the control group. The 95% confidential interval values are shown in the bars. (*P < .05)
Study Design: A randomized control study that assessed the effectiveness of partial mattress encasing with a microfiber sheet on the reduction of Group I mite antigens from beddings. The primary endpoint is mite antigen levels detected by a 2 step monoclonal antibody ELISA (n-60).
