Toluene diisocyantate (TDI) is a low-molecular-weight compound that is known to cause occupational asthma in 5% to 10% of exposed workers. These patients exhibit marked airway hyperresponsiveness and granulocyte accumulation in the airways, and 10% to 20% were also determined to have TDI-specific IgE in their serum. In this study, we developed a murine model for TDI-induced asthma. After several sensitization and challenge regimens were tested, it was decided that optimal sensitization was… CONTINUE READING
