To better understand the secretory response of the nasal mucosa, we must be able to accurately measure its physiological response. To this end, we developed a localized challenge technique using paper disks to stimulate the mucosa on one side and measure secretions from both sides to study both direct and reflex responses. Both methacholine and histamine induced a dose-dependent increase in secretion weights on the challenge side, whereas only histamine induced a contralateral reflex. Repeated… CONTINUE READING
