Effect of a Nasal Bolus Allergen Challenge on Inflammatory Markers
The current study will investigate nasal inflammatory markers obtained by filter paper collection techniques, in subjects with allergic rhinitis, determining the most appropriate time points and handling conditions, prior to running a larger study with subjects with allergic rhinitis.
Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis
Procedure: Intra-nasal allergen challenge with Phleum pratense.
Procedure: Collection of nasal effluent using filter paper.
Procedure: Measurement of nasal congestion using acoustic rhinometry.
