Inhaled Mannitol as a Laryngeal and Bronchial Provocation Test.

Timely diagnosis of vocal cord dysfunction (VCD), more recently termed "inducible laryngeal obstruction," is important because VCD is often misdiagnosed as asthma, resulting in delayed diagnosis and i...

The utility of a 5(th) nap in multiple sleep latency test.

This is the first study that aimed to look specifically at the utility of the 5(th) nap in the multiple sleep latency test (MSLT), a test used to assist in the diagnosis of narcolepsy.

Predictive value of a negative oral provocation test in patients with hypersensitivity to analgesics.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) take first or second place as the cause of drug-induced hypersensitivity reactions. The oral provocation test (OPT) is a gold standard for the diagnosis o...

The Lack of Utility of Anti-tTG IgG in the Diagnosis of Celiac Disease When Anti-tTG IgA Is Negative.

Guidelines for diagnosing celiac disease (CD) recommend initial testing with a highly sensitive serologic test for anti-tissue transglutaminase immunoglobulin A antibodies (tTG IgA). When the probabil...

Dynamic Changes in Heart Rate Variability and Nasal Airflow Resistance during Nasal Allergen Provocation Test.

Allergic rhinitis is a major chronic respiratory disease and an immunoneuronal disorder. We aimed at providing further knowledge on the function of the neural system in nasal allergic reaction. Here, ...

Measurement of Exhaled Nitric Oxide (NO) and Bronchial Provocation Test With Mannitol as a Predictor of Response to Inhaled Corticosteroids in Chronic Cough

Chronic cough is defined by its persistence beyond 8 weeks. Many conditions can explain the existence of a bronchial inflammation. In the management of chronic cough, the search for bronch...

Titrated Quantitative Conjunctival Provocation Test (tqCPT)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.

Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.

A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.

In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

An in vitro test used in the diagnosis of allergies including drug hypersensitivity. The allergen is added to the patient's white blood cells and the subsequent histamine release is measured.
