Better understanding of the pathogenesis of occupational asthma is important for affected workers, and also has potential relevance for nonoccupational asthma.
Further studies are expected to explore the effect of environmental control and medical surveillance. The key to successful management of occupational asthma and occupational rhinitis may be prospective surveillance of the occurrence of specific IgE antibodies before the onset of allergic symptoms.
The apparent lack of training in the approach to specific inhalation challenge testing in fellowship programs, the relatively few specialized centers, and the apparent lack of recognition by many physicians who are presented with a patient with suspected occupational asthma means that the use of...
In conclusion, occupational asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are likely to pay a substantial contribution to the total costs of the two disorders. These costs are expected to rise with the increasing prevalence of the diseases. Intervention strategies for effective control and...
The direct causes of occupational dermatoses: chemical, mechanical, physical, and biological in nature are presented. The implications of assigning the degree and type of occupational dermatoses are explained. Workmans compensation is based on a no-fault arrangement, stating that unrestricted...
Complex multifactorial genetic and environmental interactions make research in this area difficult and apparent associations with allergic disease may not be causal in nature. Many current targets for prevention, such as early allergen exposure and infant feeding practices, are proving to be...
There is good evidence that exhaled nitric oxide reflects eosinophilic airway inflammation in asthma. Well designed, long-term studies are needed to evaluate whether the addition of exhaled nitric oxide measurements to clinical and lung function assessment results in improved asthma control.
The clinical efficacy and the optimal safety profile of sublingual immunotherapy make it a good candidate for treating respiratory allergy in children. Some aspects, such as the dose-response relationship and preventive effect, will be a research challenge for future developments and better...
