higher environmental relative moldiness index (ermism) values measured in detroit homes of severely asthmatic children.sieved vacuum bag dust from the homes of 143 children in detroit was analyzed by mold specific quantitative pcr (msqpcr) and the environmental relative moldiness index (ermism) was calculated for each home. children living in these homes were grouped as non-asthmatic (n=83), moderately asthmatic (n=28) and severely asthmatic (n=32) based on prescription medication usage for their asthma management (none, occasional and daily, respectively). the mean ermi for each group of homes was 6.2 for non-a ...200818280542
