Occupational asthma due to colistin in a pharmaceutical worker

Susana Gómez-OllésX Muñoz


To our knowledge, this is the first case report of a 24-year-old man working in a pharmaceutical company transporting and storing raw materials who developed occupational asthma (OA) to colistin. The specific inhalation challenge confirmed the diagnosis of OA to colistin. Specific IgE was not detected, because dot-blot analysis was negative at all colistin concentrations tested. To our knowledge, OA due to a peptide antibiotic has not previously been described. This antibiotic should be listed as a trigger of OA.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
