Abstract

The aim of the present investigation is to compare a physical bronchial challenge with two pharmacological tests based on the inhalation of histamine and carbachol solutions in order to assess the discriminative effectiveness of the procedure in asthmatic patients. Moreover, baseline pulmonary function and severity of symptoms are compared to the responses to each test.
