  • SAN DIEGO, March 1 -- Nearly half of all patients with seasonal allergies cite symptoms that can be triggered by non-allergic irritants, many of them are linked to indoor air quality problems, investigators here reported. (medpagetoday.com)
  • Many of the non-allergic irritants are cited as risk factors for indoor air quality problems, also known as "sick building syndrome," noted Dennis Shusterman, M.D., M.P.H., of the University of Washington in Seattle. (medpagetoday.com)
  • We frequently see patients in our clinic who complain of reactivity to workplace irritants, and/or problems with indoor air quality, and one of the premises I have in my work is that what allergists call non-allergic rhinitis very much overlaps with what the occupational medicine physician calls irritant rhinitis, and the two professions can learn from one another," Dr. Shusterman said.
