Videncenter for Duft- og Kemikalieoverfølsomhed er lukket med udgangen af 2013, og siderne på denne hjemmeside bliver ikke længere opdateret. Datoen for seneste opdatering af sidens indhold ses nederst på de enkelte sider. Bemærk, at der kan være kommet ny viden siden sidste opdatering.

Astma-Allergi Danmark har påtaget sig at videreføre rådgivningen som en udvidelse af foreningens eksisterende tilbud til mennesker med følsomme luftveje. Det er muligt at ringe til Astma-Allergi Danmark på alle hverdage fra kl. 10-12 og tillige om onsdagen fra kl. 16-18. Astma-Allergi Danmark har integreret viden om duft- og kemikalieoverfølsomhed på foreningens hjemmeside Det ligger fra forsiden under overskriften MCS og kan findes her:

The Danish Research Centre for Chemical Sensitivities is a national centre engaged into research in and information about Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.


The condition is called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) or Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance (IEI).

Latest news

The financial means from the Danish Ministry of the Environment/Environmental Protection Agency to the Research Center will teminate by the end of 2013.

The protocol for the study on the effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields in MCS patients is now available.

The objectives of the study were to use quantitative sensory testing to study central hyperexcitability and multiple aspects of central sensory processing in MCS patients.

The objectives of the pilot study were to assess the feasibility of an 8-week mindfulness-based cognitive therapy program (MBCT) for adults with MCS. The study design was a randomized clinical trial. The MBCT programme comprised 8 weekly sessions of 2½ hours. Forty-two adults were screened for eligibility and 37 were included. No significant differences in effect measures were found between the groups. However, those who completed the MBCT program generally reported benefiting in terms of improved coping strategies and sleep quality. The positive verbal feedback from the participants in the MBCT group suggests that a larger randomized clinical trial on the effect of MBCT for MCS could be considered.

The article describes the study protocol for a randomized controlled trial on the effect of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for multiple chemical sensitivities.
The objectives of this study were to investigate whether symptoms attributed to common airborne chemicals were associated with contact allergy, and to explore associations between chemical sensitivity and non-allergic reactions in the skin. The study contributes to the elucidation of the mechanisms underlying odor and chemical sensitivity.
Our research
The Centre's research on Multiple Chemical Sensitivity is based on a bio-psychosocial disease model and is organised in seven main areas.
