Comments for the page titled: "Normal non-specific reactivity excluded occupational asthma?"
This study reports a a very high sensitivity for non-specific reactivity in predicting a positive specific challenge test to an occupational agent. Most of those with negative NSBR were away from exposure at the time of the test, something generally found by others. The high sensitivity is partl ...

Comments for the paper: "Chemical determinants of occupational hypersensitivity pneumonitis", 2015, Occup Med
First attempt at a predictive model for low MW causes of HP. Chemicals capable of causing HP tend to have higher predicted asthma hazard index, are more lipophilic and are more likely to be protein cross-linkers than those causing OA.
