Investigation on the protective value of breathing masks in farmer's lung using an inhalation provocation test

Chest 95(1): 100-105
Investigation on the protective value of breathing masks in farmer's lung using an inhalation provocation test
Six subjects with farmer's lung (2 of whom demonstrated precipitins against Micropolyspora faeni Aspergillus fumigatus and hay) underwent double inhalation challenge tests, each lasting 60 min, using natural antigen exposure. Each farmer brought a sample of his own hay for the exposure tests. Mycological examination of the hay samples revealed Aspergillus (including A. fumigatus), Fusarium, Mucor, actinomycetes, Penicillium, Alternaria, Rhodotorula, Absidia and yeasts.
