Methods and composition for the treatment of allergic asthma

The present invention relates to a method of treating allergic asthma in a subject in need thereof comprising a step of administering to said subject a therapeutically effective amount of a polypeptide comprising or consisting of a biologically active fragment of the house-dust mite Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus Der p 2.1. Inventors have used a model allergy in a severe asthma allergic (mouse Balbc). They have surprisingly found that when they injected twice the polypeptide derp2.1 in the mouse model after a third asthma attack, the mouse presents a respiratory improvement, reduction of neutrophils and eosinophils in the broncho-alveolar lavage (BAL), an increase of regulators lymphocytes T and reduction of natural killer cells in the BAL. Thus, the polypeptide derp2.1 is a new tool to treat the allergic asthma by a restoration of lung function and reduction of inflammatory environment.
