Efficacy Assessment and Improvement of an Allergen Dispersion System in an Exposure Room

Red Maple Trials (Ottawa, ON) created a new facility where patients can be exposed to airborne allergens. In this facility, the patient’s symptoms (with or without medication intervention) can be monitored in a controlled manner. In the current project, airborne allergen (pollen and dust mites) concentration and size distribution will be monitored in time. It is expected that more homogeneous allergen concentration and spatial distribution in this exposure room will allow better competitiveness for the company to attract pharmaceutical companies. Nevertheless, allergy research regarding the approval of new medication (with better efficacy) can impact a significant portion of allergic patients in Canada and abroad.
