Título Meteorological conditions and the diagnosis of occupationally related contact sensitizations
Información bibliográfica Aug. 2008, Vol.34, No.4, p.316-321. Illus. 20 ref.
Resumen The objective of this study was to quantify the possible impact of temperature and humidity on patch-test reactions to occupationally related allergens. Clinical data from 61,780 patients tested with standard series allergens potentially related to occupational exposure from 1993 through 2001 were collected by a contact sensitization surveillance network. The association between the patch-test results and meteorological data (air temperature and humidity) collected at the time and the approximate location of the testing was analyzed in a multinomial logistic regression analysis. For the most part, weather conditions were not associated with reactions to occupational allergens. Thus the validity of patch testing does not seem to be compromised by meteorological conditions.
