||3rd Quarter 1990, No.43, p.227-232. Illus. 35 ref.
||This first part looks at the chemistry of isocyanates in order to understand most of the difficulties encountered in the study of the respiratory consequences of the inhalation of these molecules, in particular the current uncertainties in their physiopathology and in the perfecting of a reliable and harmless diagnostic test. The prevalence, diagnosis and development of respiratory allergy and its prevention are the subject of the second part (see CIS 92-1306).
