||Critical remarks on the diagnosis of isocyanate-induced asthma
||Kritische Anmerkungen zur Diagnostik des Isocyanat-Asthmas [in German]|
||1987, Vol.22, No.12, p.291-293. Illus. 6 ref.
||Serum samples from 160 patients with established isocyanate-induced asthma and from 25 controls were used in a study of the selectivity of the radioallergosorbent test (RAST). False-positive values were attributed to the different selectivities of various reagents studied. At RAST-values above 0.35U/mL no false-positive results were obtained.
