Title Absence of airway hyperreactivity to methacholine in a worker sensitized to toluene diisocyanate (TDI).
Bibliographic information May 1980, Vol.22, No.5, p.327-331. 42 ref.
Abstract A woman exposed to TDI working in a plant producing polyester-resin/fibrous reinforced plastic fixtures reacted negatively to tests for p-tolyl isocyanate IgE antibodies and leukocyte inhibition factor for isocyanate antigen. Methacholine challenges were negative even when symptoms were at a maximum. Airway response to TDI may not always be accompanied by methacholine hyperreactivity.
