OBJECTIVE To investigate association between non-specific bronchial reactivity (NBR) and level of mite specific IgE amongst mite-sensitized non-asthmatic subjects. METHODS Subjects attending occupational check-up were assessed for: respiratory symptoms, atopic status (skin prick testing [SPT], total and specific IgE), spirometry and NBR. Individuals without history of respiratory disease (N = 234) were included into analysis. RESULTS All subjects had normal spirometry and 99% had normal NBR… CONTINUE READING
