||Mechanisms of occupational asthma induced by isocyanates
||Jan. 1998, Vol.42, No.1, p.33-36. Illus. 36 ref.
||Isocyanates are some of the most important low molecular weight compounds associated with occupational asthma. These compounds are often volatile and are highly reactive on the mucous membranes, especially the conjunctivae and the respiratory tract. The physiological causes of isocynate-induced asthma are reviewed. The main mechanisms are immunological, pharmacological and/or irritative. Topics: asthma; biological effects; immunology; irritation; isocyanates; literature survey; mucous membranes; pathogenesis; pharmacological anamnesis; symptoms; volatile substances.
