Bronchoalveolar eosinophilia during allergen-induced late asthmatic reactions.
Bronchoalveolar lavage was performed in 19 asthmatic patients and in 5 control subjects to suggest that eosinophils and their mediators might be involved in the development of LAR after allergen inhalation. Expand
Volumetric Aerobiological Survey of Conidial Fungi in the North‐East Netherlands
It is concluded that the most prevailing airborne moulds are not necessarily the most potent allergens, at least in skin testing, while Aspergillus and Botrytis showed a high sensitization rate, while Cladosporium and Altenaria did not. Expand
Interpretation of bronchodilator response in patients with obstructive airways disease. The Dutch Chronic Non-Specific Lung Disease (CNSLD) Study Group.
Delta FEV1%pred appears to be the most useful method of expressing bronchodilator response, both for clinical and for research purposes. Expand
Changes in bronchial hyperreactivity induced by 4 weeks of treatment with antiasthmatic drugs in patients with allergic asthma: a comparison between budesonide and terbutaline.
It is concluded that budesonide improves bronchial hyperreactivity, possibly by a dampening of late allergic reactions, whereas treatment with terbutaline may lead to a temporary increase of bronchia hyperreactive, possibly as a result of beta-receptor desensitization. Expand
The Dutch hypothesis (chronic non-specific lung disease) revisited.
The hypothesis was put forward that asthma, chronic bronchitis and emphysema should be considered as different expressions of one disease entity, in which both endogenous and exogenous factors play a role in the pathogenesis. Expand
A volumetric-aerobiologic study of seasonal fungus prevalence inside and outside dwellings of asthmatic patients living in northeast Netherlands.
Air sampling with an Andersen sampler was carried out in 28 houses of asthmatic patients with an allergy for moulds, and patients showed high sensitisation towards Aspergillus, irrespective of the concentrations of the airborne fungi. Expand
Sequential sampling of fungal air spores inside and outside the homes of mould-sensitive, asthmatic patients: a search for a relationship to obstructive reactions.
It is concluded that a possible relationship exists between the prevalence of airborne fungi and IPC, and in a given patient the occurrence of a special mould type may be related to obstructive reactions. Expand
Penetration of VP 16-213 into cerebrospinal fluid after high-dose intravenous administration.
VP 16-213 in standard doses is active against a number of solid tumors but its penetration into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is very limited at these dose levels, and its application in late intensification regimens as a form of prophylaxis of CNS metastases should be investigated. Expand
A comparison of bronchodilator therapy with or without inhaled corticosteroid therapy for obstructive airways disease. Dutch Chronic Non-Specific Lung Disease Study Group.
In the corticosteroid group, patients who did not smoke, who had allergies, or who were less than 40 years old benefited more from their treatment than did those who smoked, did not have allergy, or were over 40. Expand
