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 astma-allergi.dk. Det ligger fra forsiden under overskriften MCS og kan findes her: http://mcs.astma-allergi.dk/

Purpose and terms of reference

The Danish Research Centre for Chemical Sensitivities' overall objectives are:

  • To investigate the prevalence and severity of symptoms attributed to common airborne chemicals in the Danish population. 
  • To identify disease mechanisms and risk factors involved in multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). 
  • To do research into possible treatments and into how progression of MCS is avoided. 
  • To inform and advise on MCS based on existing, research-based knowledge.

The objective is formulated on the background of the Centre’s mandate. The wording is as follows:

 

"The role of the Danish Research Centre for Chemical Sensitivities is to work towards remedying the lack of knowledge on multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). Little is known about why the symptoms arise and why in some people they can lead to a chronic, disabling disease. The pathophysiological mechanisms behind the development of MSC are largely unknown. Likewise, the extent of the disease and its consequences for both the individual and society in Denmark remain unclear. The Centre’s task is to systematically generate scientific documentation on MCS —its extent and consequences — and to advance counselling concerning all aspects of the disease. The work is carried out within the Centre’s remit."
