Sensitization to Cat: When Is Nasal Challenge Needed?

Although the skin prick test (SPT) is a reliable diagnostic tool in perennial allergic rhinitis (PER) for patients allergic to cats, the minimum necessary SPT wheal size required to distinguish cat se...

Association of Sensitization to Different Aeroallergens With Airway Function and Nasal Patency in Urban Children.

Children with sensitization to aeroallergens have decreased lung function and nasal patency. Our purpose was to determine the association of sensitization to different aeroallergens with airway functi...

Clinical outcomes related to molecular allergy diagnosis.

Aim of this review is the description of the medical conditions in which the support of molecular allergy diagnostics (MAD) has an impact on the clinical outcomes, such as laboratory diagnostics, prog...

The role of early life food sensitization in adolescent lung function: Results from two birth cohort studies.

It is unclear whether early life food sensitization (as opposed to aeroallergen sensitization) is associated with subsequent poor lung function.

Perceived Versus Actual Aeroallergen Sensitization in Urban Children.

Individuals often report allergy to specific aeroallergens, but allergy testing can reveal disparate sensitization.

Clinical Trials [8569 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Repeat Nasal Allergen Challenge

This is a non-drug, biomarker study to assess the utility of the model of repeated nasal allergen challenges in subjects with atopic rhinitis as a method of inducing an increased response ...

Nasal Allergen Challenge - Reproducibility of Biomarkers and Effect of Topical Steroid Treatment

Subjects with allergic asthma developing the required nasal symptoms in response to nasal allergen titration during a screening period will be randomized 1:1 to one of 2 cohorts. All subje...

Topical ASP-1001 (Contrast Media Formulation) and the Acute Response to Nasal Allergen Challenge (NAC)

The purpose of this study is to see whether ASP-1001 when given as a nasal spray is safe and can reduce the signs and symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hayfever) following nasal challenge wit...

A Pilot Monocenter Study to Assess Cellular and Soluble Biomarkers in Nasal Secretions

Allergic Rhinitis is an inflammatory disease which causes an influx of inflammatory cells and cytokines into the nasal mucosa. These biomarkers can also be found in the nasal secretions. T...

Leukotriene Antagonism in Recruitment of CD49d Expressing Neutrophils in Atopic Subjects

The purpose of this study is to see if the recruitment of a certain cell type (the alpha 4 integrin (CD49d) expressing neutrophil) during a nasal allergen challenge can be inhibited by pre...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.

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.

Clinical practice by members of the nursing faculty in order to maintain a balance in their nursing activities--clinical, education, and research.

Diagnostic measurement of the nose and its cavity through acoustic reflections. Used to measure nasal anatomical landmarks, nasal septal deviation, and nasal airway changes in response to allergen provocation tests (NASAL PROVOCATION TESTS).
