BACKGROUND: Little is known about the epidemiology of rhinitis, particularly the perennial and non-allergic forms. The aim of this study was to compare the symptoms, atopic state, and medical history of individuals with seasonal and perennial rhinitis. DESIGN: Of 7702 adults aged 16-65 years registered with a London general practice, 2969 (30%) were screened by postal questionnaire. Samples of 113 subjects without rhinitis, 51 with seasonal symptoms alone, 128 with perennial symptoms and… Expand

Rhinitis (allergic and nonallergic) in an atopic pediatric referral population in the grasslands of inland South Africa.
TLDR

Patient and physician perspectives on the impact and management of perennial and seasonal allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
In this UK survey, allergic rhinitis was more common than asthma, hypertension, skin rashes, eczema and diabetes, and the GPs considered PAR to be more difficult to treat than SAR, and GP and patient level of satisfaction in the treatment was low. Expand
Bronchial Hyperresponsiveness in Adults with Seasonal and Perennial Rhinitis: Is There a Link for Asthma and Rhinitis?
TLDR
The dose-response curves documented a lower value of PC20 in the group with perennial rhinitis and a statistically significant difference of bronchial hyperresponsiveness prevalence between the three groups. Expand
The prevalence of allergic rhinitis and nasal symptoms in Nottingham.
TLDR
Individuals who responded as having hay fever were significantly more likely to have worked in an environment with a lot of dust in the last 2 years than asymptomatic respondents, although fume exposure was not found to be a significant risk factor. Expand
Prevalence of self reported allergic rhinitis and its relationship with asthma among adult Nigerians.
TLDR
The study revealed a high prevalence of allergic rhinitis in individuals with asthma, and it is therefore important to increase awareness of the existence of allergic Rhinitis and asthma as a common airway disease to ensure adequate management and control of both conditions. Expand
Asthma, allergic rhinitis and eczema in 5-12-year-old school children across Lebanon.
TLDR

TLDR

Infectious Agent-Induced Rhinitis
TLDR
The epidemiology of nonallergic infectious agent-induced rhinitis is poorly known, but signs and symptoms of varying severity and a doubt about allergic underlying conditions are always present. Expand

Labelling of rhinitis and hayfever by doctors.
TLDR
It is concluded that rhinitis is frequently underdiagnosed and misdiagnosed, and increased detection of hayfever could account for the steep rise in consultation rates seen in recent decades. Expand
Epidemiology of asthma and allergic rhinitis in a total community, Tecumseh, Michigan. IV. Natural history.
TLDR
Allergic rhinitis was more likely to remit when the duration was shorter than 5 years, while asthma remissions were not clearly influenced by duration, while Persons with perennial allergic Rhinitis were less likely to Remit than those with seasonal symptoms. Expand

TLDR
Methodological differences in ascertainment and diagnosis in this study compared with a previous study have contributed to the higher cumulative prevalence of asthma and allergic rhinitis here reported. Expand
Symptoms of Chronic and Allergic Rhinitis and Occurrence of Nasal Secretion Granulocytes in University Students, School Children and Infants
TLDR
Nasal secretion neutrophilia seemed to have an adverse effect on the reliability of secretion eosinophilia as an indicator of active nasal allergy, and possible reasons for the rising prevalence rates of allergic rhinitis are discussed. Expand
Non-respiratory symptoms of acute asthma.
TLDR
Thirty consecutive patients with asthma attending the chest outpatient clinics at Newmarket General and Addenbrooke's Hospitals were studied and the diagnosis was supported in all by 15% improvement in peak flow or FEV1 after administration of bronchodilator. Expand

TLDR
Differences in birth season pattern between the two cohorts of 18‐year‐olds were interpreted as an effect of unidentified adjuvant factors that might have developed over a 10‐year period. Expand
Respiratory disorders and allergy skin-test reactions.
TLDR
It is suggested that an atopic predisposition relatively early in life may be a risk factor for the later development of chronic obstructive lung diseases, especially in children and in young to middle-aged adults. Expand
Prevalence of asthma and hay fever in England and Wales.
TLDR
Only in the age group 5-14 was there any likelihood that some of the increased prevalence of asthma might have resulted from a reduction in the prevalence of acute bronchitis, and was not accounted for by changes in diagnostic preference. Expand
The natural history of asthma in childhood.
TLDR
The incidence and prognosis of childhood asthma and wheezing illness was studied using data obtained at ages 7, 11, and 16 from a national cohort of 8806 children born in 1958, and those which predicted the onset of AW after the age of 7 were: male sex of child; mother aged 15-19 at child's birth.
