Wood dust hypersensitivity

Abstract

Two patients developed severe respiratory difficulty after occupational exposure to sawdust derived from abiruana wood. Both patients had positive immediate wheal-and-flare responses to skin tests with an extract of abiruana wood. Skin tests to other wood dusts were negative. Precipitating antibodies could not be demonstrated in the patients' serum. Bronchial challenge in both patients produced acute airway obstruction that was rapidly reversible. In addition, 1 patient developed airway obstruction 6-8 hr later that was more gradually reversible.

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.
