Experimental systemic contact dermatitis from nickel: a dose–response study
Among nickel‐sensitive individuals, a definite dose–response dependency was seen, following oral exposure to nickel, and the nickel content in the urine and serum of both nickel‐ sensitive and healthy control individuals was directly related to the dose of nickel ingested. Expand
Patch test reactivity to nickel alloys
11 widely used nickel alloys were investigated with respect to corrosion stability and reactivity in nickel‐sensitive individuals. Alloys with a nickel release in synthetic sweat exceeding 1Expand
Hand eczema guidelines based on the Danish guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of hand eczema
The aetiology of hand eczema is unknown in up to 20% of cases, and the clinical appearance of these cases is unknown. Expand
