IA4.6: A Rat IGE Test for the Identification of Chemical Respiratory Allergens

Some chemicals can induce allergies, including allergy of the lungs and other parts of the respiratory tract. (Examples include acid anhydrides, certain diisocyanates, some platinum salts, certain reactive dyes and plicatic acid). This is an important occupational health problem because […]

R2-TNO: The Role of Irritancy and Irritant-Induced Inflammation in the Elicitation of Respiratory Hypersensitivity Reactions

A range of low molecular weight chemicals can cause adverse reactions in the airways such as allergic asthma, including occupational asthma. Allergies involve a generally symptom-free induction phase where sensitisation is induced, and an elicitation (challenge) phase, where inhalation of […]

IRTA2-001-SYNG: Transcript Profiling and Cytokine Fingerprinting : Identification and Characterisation of Chemical Respiratory Allergens

Allergic hypersensitivity of the respiratory tract is an important occupational health problem. A major constraint in the development of appropriate methods for the prospective identification of chemical respiratory allergens is the continuing uncertainty regarding the immunobiological mechanisms of this disease […]

IRTA2-001-TNOV: Characterisation of Respiratory Tract Sensitization to Improve Hazard Identification of Respiratory Allergens

This project aimed to improve hazard identification of respiratory chemical allergens, as is presently being done by measuring proliferation and cytokine production in local lymph nodes and IgE in serum upon dermal application of the chemical in question. To this […]

IRTA2-001-VITO: In Vivo and In Vitro Characterisation of Chemical Respiratory Allergens: Development of an In Vitro Assay Using Gene Expression Profiling

The main objective of this project is the development of an approach/strategy that can be used to identify chemical allergens and if possible to discern respiratory from contact sensitizers. In order to accomplish this, the proposed study aims to identify […]
