The methodology of the provocative nasal test has varied according to the investigators. In order to establish a standard method of this test quantification of the nasal challenge, including the amount of the allergen, nasal site, side and size of allergen deposition, was studied. From the results obtained it is preferable to use the end point test and to apply allergen to the anterior part of the inferior turbinate in a 7mm2 size of surface area, bilaterally. An alternative test is to use a fixed amount of allergen (500 mug house dust in house dust allergy).

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
