Specific inhalation challenge in the diagnosis of occupational asthma: consensus statement.
This consensus statement provides practical recommendations for specific inhalation challenge (SIC) in the diagnosis of occupational asthma. They are derived from a systematic literature search, a census of active European centres, a Delphi conferenc

Persistence of asthmatic response after ammonium persulfate-induced occupational asthma in mice.
Since persulfate salts are an important cause of occupational asthma (OA), we aimed to study the persistence of respiratory symptoms after a single exposure to ammonium persulfate (AP) in AP-sensitized mice.

Adherence of staphylococcus aureus to catheter tubing inhibition by quaternary ammonium compounds.
S. aureus is a Gram positive bacterium which is responsible for a wide range of infections. This pathogen has also the ability to adhere to biotic or abiotic surface such as central venous catheter (CVC) and to produce a biofilm. The aim of this stud

Occupational Asthma Due to Inhalation of Aerosolized Lipophilic Coating Materials.
We present a case of onset of severe asthma in a 59-year-old patient who worked in an aerospace plant. He was noted to have wheezing on exam and obstruction on PFTs. Review of his occupational history revealed exposure to lipophilic industrial compou

The Influence of Interfering Substances on the Antimicrobial Activity of Selected Quaternary Ammonium Compounds.
Standard cleaning processes may not remove all the soiling typically found in food industry, such as carbohydrates, fats, or proteins. Contaminants have a high impact in disinfection as their presence may reduce the activity of disinfectants. The inf

Diagnostic yield of specific inhalation challenge in hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
Reliable methods are needed to diagnose hypersensitivity pneumonitis. The aim of the study was to establish the diagnostic yield of specific inhalation challenge (SIC) in patients with hypersensitivity pneumonitis. All patients with suspected hyperse
