Airway responsiveness to methacholine and risk of asthma in patients with allergic rhinitis.

Abstract

To find out whether airway hyperresponsiveness is associated with a greater risk of asthma in subjects with allergic rhinitis, 66 nonasthmatic patients with allergic rhinitis underwent inhalation challenge with methacholine. Each patient was reevaluated prospectively at least once each year and a diagnosis of asthma was accepted if the subject developed… (More)
