Brief Summary:
Comparison of citric acid and mannitol cough provocation tests among subjects with chronic cough and healthy volunteers.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Cough Diagnostic Test: Citric acid aerosol bronchial challenge Diagnostic Test: Mannitol aerosol bronchial challenge Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
35 subjects with chronic cough plus 25 subjects without any cough will be asked to participate. The study consists of two visits in the outpatient clinic of Kuopio University Hospital, department of respiratory medicine, 2 - 7 days apart. They will fill in the Leicester Cough Questionnaire and undergo two different cough provocation tests, in random order: Mannitol test and citric acid test. If a chest x-ray has not been taken within 6 months, it will be taken.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Citric acid aerosol bronchial challenge
Inhaled citric acid aerosol. This study investigates the diagnostic accuracy of two cough provocation tests, one of which is citric acid aerosol challenge.
Diagnostic Test: Citric acid aerosol bronchial challenge
Inhalation challenge by citric acid aerosol to investigate the subject's cough sensitivity

Active Comparator: Mannitol aerosol bronchial challenge
Inhaled mannitol aerosol. This study investigates the diagnostic accuracy of two cough provocation tests, one of which is mannitol aerosol challenge.
Diagnostic Test: Mannitol aerosol bronchial challenge
Inhalation challenge by mannitol aerosol to investigate the subject's cough sensitivity




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Receiver operator characteristic curves of the citric acid and the mannitol aerosol bronchial challenges [ Time Frame: Within one week from the start of the study in each individual ]
    Receiver operator characteristic curve describes the ability of the bronchial challenge to separate the cough patients from healthy volunteers


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Leicester Cough Questionnaire total score [ Time Frame: The first study day ]
    Measures cough-spesific quality of life. Range is 3 - 21 with low total score indicating poor cough-spesific quality of life. The three Leicester Cough Questionnaire subscales are added together to form the total score.
