The coincidence of allergic sensitization was investigated in 302 school-aged children and their parents. Specific sensitization to four common inhalant allergens (grass and birch pollens, cat dander, Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus) was ascertained by means of skin-prick tests (SPT) carried out on the complete family unit at the beginning of a 22-month(More)
The skin prick test (SPT) is a commonly used procedure for assessing a specific sensitization. The longitudinal variability of test results is of interest for clinical as well as epidemiological investigations. The sensitization to four common aeroallergens (grass pollen, birch pollen, Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, cat dander) is investigated within the(More)
Bronchial asthma is the most frequent chronic disease in childhood. Nevertheless, no definition of the disease is known that would enable a satisfactory epidemiological recording of asthma.

STUDY DESIGN Bronchial hyperresponsiveness of 476 schoolchildren (10.8 +/- 2.3 years) was studied three times at 12 months' intervals. The cumulative dose of 400 micrograms carbachol was applied in 50 + 50 + 100 + 200 micrograms steps. A fall of FEV1 of at least 15% was regarded as positive reaction. The test was save, as no severe obstruction was observed,(More)
In einer Querschnitts-Studie wurde untersucht, ob die Innenraumbelastung—Art der heizung und Ausmass der Ventilation—sowie die Aussenluftbelastung—Stickstoffdioxid-Konzentration und Russpartikeldeposition—unter Kontrolle von Störfaktoren einen Einfluss auf das Vorkommen von Asthma bronchiale im Kindesalter haben. Die Untersuchungsgruppe bestand aus 704(More)
To examine the possibility of an effect of indoor and outdoor exposures on the prevalence of asthma in childhood we conducted a cross-sectional study in the area of Freiburg city and two communities in the Black Forest. The study group consists of 704 children aged 7 to 16 years. The children and their mothers took part in a standardized interview and a(More)
