SEOUL, Jan. 14 (Korea Bizwire)A recent study has revealed that Cube, Samsung Electronics Co.’s popular air purifier series, helps prevent allergies and asthma among children and teenagers.

A research team led by Professor Oh Jae-hwan from Hanyang University College of Medicine showed that the Samsung Cube improved the condition of patients with atopy, allergies, and asthma.

The eight-week study involved dividing 39 patients under the age of 15 into two groups, with one group using a Samsung Cube on a regular basis, while the other group did not.

For atopic patients, the SCORAD index, used to assess the level of atopic severity, dropped by 15.2 percent for those using one of Samsung’s air purifiers.

For allergy patients, the TNSS index that measures allergic severity dropped by 28.9 percent while the ASC index, used to assess asthmatic conditions, dropped by 50.8 percent.

“The study has verified the causality between the Samsung Cube and the improvement of respiratory conditions,” said Samsung Electronics.

The Samsung Cube has already been accepted by the British Allergy Foundation and Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers for its outstanding filtering capabilities.
