Clinical Studies

Along with medical progress comes the continual development of new and better therapies for allergic overreactions.

Measurement Methods

Routine check-ups include the taking of blood samples, ECGs, urine tests and pregnancy tests. During pollen provocation the following standard tests are conducted:

Subjective assessment of symptoms

In 15-minute intervals the study participants assess their own allergic symptoms.

Rhinomanometry

Every half hour, the volume of air breathed through the nose is measured, permitting indirect conclusions about the extent of swelling in the nasal mucosa.

Nasal Secretion

The quantity of nasal secretion is measured by determining the weight of used paper tissues.

Spirometry

Every hour a lung function test is performed to determine various lung parameters (FEV1, FVC).
