Food hypersensitivity as a cause of irritable bowel syndrome was investigated by means of exclusion diet and blind provocation. Twelve atopic and twelve non-atopic individuals entered into the study. Skin prick testing with 20 foods and food additives and RAST specific for food only, were done in all cases. Serum IgE level was also measured. In 14 patients(More)
Asthma and rhinitis due to Candida albicans is well known. Trichophyton and Epidermophyton are not usually considered as causal agents for these diseases. During the years 1982 and 1983 all of the cases of chronic asthma or rhinitis exhibiting a positive immediate skin response (greater than or equal to 10 mm) to one of these three antigens were selected(More)
Ribomunyl was administered in an open clinical trial for the treatment of chronic repetitive infectious diseases of the upper respiratory tract. Two groups of patients were treated with either Ribomunyl aerosol (n = 19) or with Ribomunyl aerosol and injections (n = 17); a third group of 17 patients, serving as a control group, did not receive treatment with(More)
This study describes an in vitro method to evaluate a PAF acether release test (PART) from white blood cells after antigenic challenge. PAF acether activity of the supernatant was tested by platelet aggregation. The aggregating power was abolished by using SRI 63-441 (Sandoz), a PAF acether inhibitor. This method was applied to 57 patients with allergic or(More)
Known for many years, the relationship between bronchial asthma and bacteria are complex. Nevertheless they certainly are part of the several pathogenetic mechanisms of that disease. The recent discovery of specific IgE antibodies to several species of bacteria introduces new insights in the classification of these mechanisms. A careful consideration of the(More)
