Specific bronchial and nasal provocations with work-related allergens
Specific inhalation challenge (SIC) is the golden standard for identifying specific causes of work-related asthma and rhinoconjunctivitis. Few centres offer SIC as it requires experience, resources and acute treatment facilities. Prior to SIC treatment should be carefully reduced. A control challenge is performed on a separate day. Many new asthma causes have been identified with SIC. SIC provides the basis for optimal treatment and advice.
