This study is meant to compare two routine diagnostic approaches in patients with bronchial asthma. Patients are challenged with methacholine in order to measure their bronchial response. We compare the evaluation of the effects of incremental concentrations versus incremental dosages.
The proposed study will investigate the effect of a polyunsaturated fatty acid / lipid mixture (LCPUFAs) on the clinical symptoms, bronchial inflammation and lung function in allergic asthma in a bronchial allergen provocation (BAP) model. For this purpose, patients with stable episodic asthma and dust mite allergy will underwent BAP before and after supplementation with LCPUFAs. The clinical symptoms, bronchial inflammation, exhaled NO increase and lung function decline (FEV1)...
The clinical relevance of an allergen-specific sensitization is proven e.g., by allergen challenge tests in clinical routine. Several protocols for different challenge tests such as nasal (NPT), bronchial (BPT) or conjunctival provocation test (CPT) have been proposed. Beneath others, the CPT is broadly used in both clinical trials and routine because of its feasibility. However, there is no internationally harmonized standard regarding the clinical interpretation of CPT...
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 bronchial hyperreactivity (HRB) is recommended. The treatment relies primarily on the prescription of inhaled corticosteroids. It has been shown recently that the existence of an HRB with Methacholine (bronchial provocation test used in routine) does predict the effectiveness of inhaled corticostero...
The purpose of this study is to compare the diagnostic validity (sensitivity and specificity) and evaluate the safety of 2-min Tidal Breathing methacholine bronchial provocation tests with the Wright and Devilbiss646 nebulizers in asthmatic in Guangzhou.
IgE-associated allergy is a hypersensitivity disease affecting more than 25% of the population in industrialised countries. The recognition of allergen by immunoglobulin E (IgE) plays a central role in the cause of allergic diseases. Both seasonal and nasal provocation studies have demonstrated the rise in specific IgE after allergen exposure. Additionally changes in other clinical and immunological parameters (e.g. nasal blockage, mast cell and basophil sensitivity, various cy...
- To determine prevalence of local allergic rhinitis (LAR) - To evaluate clinical characteristic and severity of local allergic rhinitis - To measure changing of tryptase and Specific IgE for Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Dp) after nasal allergen provocation test (NAPT)
The study is meant to observe the influence of nutrition on nasal and bronchial discomfort in patients with allergy on grass pollen after specific bronchial provocation. Therefore, the investigators will record the patients' nutrition habits and measure the blood level of long chained polyunsaturated fatty-acids.
Evaluation of the effect of fluticasone propionate vs placebo applied as nasal spray on the increase of allergen-specific serum IgE levels following nasal exposure to recombinant allergens. Nasal sprays will be applied for four weeks starting two weeks before nasal provocation and serum IgE levels will be followed during eight weeks after nasal provocation.
Chronic bronchial inflammation is an important clinical feature in cystic fibrosis. Approximately 10% of patients with cystic fibrosis suffer from Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis. Severity of allergy against Aspergillus fumigatus will be examined using radioallergosorbent test and skin Prick-test. Subsequently, in patients with established sensitization (RAST ≥ 0.35 IU/mL) a specific bronchial provocation with Aspergillus will be performed. In addition, exhale...
This study aims to compare the efficacy of nasal provocation test with Lysine-Acetylsalicylate in patients with history of NSAIDs hypersensitivity between mucocutaneous symptoms and respiratory symptoms and laboratory outcomes.
Deep inhalation (DI) dilates normal airway precontracted with methacholine. The fact that this effect is diminished or absent in asthma could be explained by the presence of bronchial inflammation. The hypothesis tested was that DI induces more relaxation in methacholine induced bronchoconstriction—solely determined by the smooth muscle contraction—than in exercise induced bronchoconstriction, which is contributed to by both smooth muscle contraction and airway wall inflamm...
This is a randomized, cross-over, single-blind trial. Eligible patients will be randomly assigned to undergo either capsaicin or adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cough provocation test, followed by a washout period of 2 to 14 days. Participants will be crossed-over to undergo another cough provocation test. Patient would be under observation in the out-patient clinics for ~2 hours following the cough provocation tests in case of severe adverse events.
Primary Objective Comparison of the inhibition of the allergic response assessed by nasal provocation test after epicutanous pollen allergen administration and placebo epicutaneous administration. Secondary Objectives Comparison of the efficacy of the placebo with that of the epicutanous pollen allergen administration evaluated by visual analog symptom scales (nasal itching, sneezing, rhinorrhea, conjunctival redness, and lacrimation, lung symptoms ), Comparison of the i...
The prevalence of airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is very high in elite swimmers, reaching 80% in certain studies. Repeated Chlorine-derivatives exposure may be a major causative factor for its development. Asthma diagnosis is generally made on the basis of clinical characteristics. The demonstration of a variable bronchial obstruction through positive expiratory flow reversibility to a bronchodilator, spontaneous variations of airway obstruction or a positive provocation test...
The purpose of this study is to find out how the provocation of the nose changes breathing style (specifically, frequency and tidal volume changes)
In the planned study, 60 patients with mild cystic fibrosis (CF) with and without the involvement of small airways (small airway disease - SAD) are to be compared with a historical control group matched in age and gender. During the first study visit subjects are asked to perform a pulmonary function test (spirometry, body plethysmography with helium, determination of "Trapped Air") and exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) and exhaled carbon monoxide (eCO) measurements will be done in ex...
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 to inhaled allergen, which will more closely resemble the responses seen during the hayfever season.
The investigators propose to synchronize automated measurements of behavior - head, body, and face dynamics, gaze, and vocal prosody - with simultaneous recordings of brain activity in clinically relevant contexts.
Electroencephalograhy (EEG) is used as a tool for diagnosing epilepsy/convulsions. During the recording, especially for childer who are suspected of having abbcence epilepsy , we perform a provocation test of hyperventilation in order to induce epileptic discharges. There is no clear instruction about the position of the child during performing this hyperventilation provocation. Clinical observations showed that this provocation is more effective when it's performed in ...
In this prospective randomized study, we aim to compare the rate of PV reconnection following PVAI performed at different energy settings (30 Watts vs 40 Watts) where dormant PV conduction will be unmasked by adenosine-provocation.
Bronchial asthma is a common chronic respiratory disease. Patients usually manifest variable symptoms (such as short of breath, chest tightness, cough, etc.) and variable airflow limitation and often associated with airway hyper-responsiveness and airway inflammation. About 1-18% of the global population suffered from the disease, causing huge economic burden for patients and countries. Airway reactivity measurement is an important way of diagnosis of asthma. Methacholine (Mch)...
The sphincter of Oddi is a circular band of muscle which controls the flow of pancreatic juices and bile into the small intestine. Abnormal function of the Sphincter of Oddi, known as Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction (SOD), can lead to recurrent episodes of abdominal pain. Making a diagnosis of SOD is difficult and is currently achieved using an invasive pressure test. This pressure test is associated with some adverse effects including inflammation of the pancreas gland. We are i...
Direct drug provocation testing, without prior skin or in vitro testing, is the reference standard for confirming the diagnosis of drug hypersensitivity reactions in children reporting mild and delayed-onset reactions. However, optimal protocol(s) have not been standardized. Although a 2-days' provocation testing protocol is effective, increasing its duration (up to 14 days) may improve its diagnosis performance without increasing the risk of severe reactions. However, a prolon...
