  1. Prognosis of occupational asthma.

    Article - En anglais

    Several studies on the prognosis of occupational asthma have shown that a significant proportion of patients continue to experience asthmatic symptoms and nonspecific bronchial hyperresponsiveness after cessation of work.

    The determinants of this unfavourable prognosis of asthma are:

    • long duration of exposure before the onset of asthma;

    • long duration of symptoms before diagnosis;

    • baseline airway obstruction;

    • dual response after specific challenge test;

    • and the persistence of markers of airway inflammation in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and bronchial biopsy.

    The relevance of unmunological markers in the outcome of occupational asthma has not yet been assessed.
