Animal Allergy in Korean Veterinary Researcher

2016-08-16 10:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators will evaluate sensitization to animal allergens and allergic symptom during contacting animal allergens in Korean veterinary researchers who attend their annual conference.

The investigators will compare sensitization to animal allergen and other clinical and occupational factors between subjects who suffer from allergic symptom during contacting animal and those who do not.

Description

The investigators will visit annual conference of Korean veterinary researchers.

After informed consent, Korean veterinary researchers who attend their conference and agree to enrollment into this study will be asked to respond to questionnaires regarding their gender, age, underlying allergic diseases, family history of allergic diseases, occupation and it's duration, contact animal and contact duration. Subjects will also be requested to report allergic symptom, causal animal and situation of contact including veterinary service, animal experiment, pet ownership, and ingestion if subjects suffer from allergic symptom when subjects contact animal.

Then, subjects will also be asked to undergo skin prick test for animal allergens including chicken feather and ten mammal epithelia as well as cow's milk, and hen's egg, four fish flesh and seven animal meats.

subjects will be divided into two group, subjects who suffer from allergic symptom during contacting animal and those who do not. Between two groups, sensitization to animal allergens as well as other demographic and occupational factors including gender, age, underlying allergic diseases, family history of allergic diseases, occupation and it's duration, contact animal and contact duration will be compared.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Allergic rhinitis that occurs at the same time every year. It is characterized by acute CONJUNCTIVITIS with lacrimation and ITCHING, and regarded as an allergic condition triggered by specific ALLERGENS.

Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose similar to that found in hay fever except that symptoms persist throughout the year. The causes are usually air-borne allergens, particularly dusts, feathers, molds, animal fur, etc.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. It was established in 1948.

A group of symptoms that are two- to three-fold more common in those who work in large, energy-efficient buildings, associated with an increased frequency of headaches, lethargy, and dry skin. Clinical manifestations include hypersensitivity pneumonitis (ALVEOLITIS, EXTRINSIC ALLERGIC); allergic rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL); ASTHMA; infections, skin eruptions, and mucous membrane irritation syndromes. Current usage tends to be less restrictive with regard to the type of building and delineation of complaints. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

A form of non-allergic rhinitis that is characterized by nasal congestion and posterior pharyngeal drainage.
