Large biological variability between subjects has been shown for both acoustic rhinometry and nasal lavage biomarker concentrations, but relatively little is known about the influence of personal factors on these techniques. The aim was to evaluate if nasal symptoms, acoustic rhinometric measurements and nasal lavage fluid biomarkers are related to age, gender, smoking, atopy or asthma. A standardized nasal investigation was applied in 411 white-collar workers, belonging to three occupational… CONTINUE READING
