Effects of inhaled beclomethasone on airway responsiveness in occupational asthma : placebo-controlled study of subjects sensitized to toluene diisocyanate.
We investigated the effect of 5 months of treatment with inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) on the airway responsiveness to methacholine (PD20FEV1) and to toluene diisocyanate (TDI) in 15 sensitized asthamtic subjects who had been removed from occupational exposure to RDI.
After diagnosis was established by a positive inhalation challenge with TDI, each subject was removed from occupational exposure to isocyanates and treated with either BDP (1 mg twice per day, n=7) or placebo (n=8) for 5 months.
