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/

Multiple chemical sensitivity: On the scent of central sensitization.

Year:2013
Subject:The central nervous system

The objectives of the study were to use quantitative sensory testing (QST) to study central hyperexcitability and multiple aspects of central sensory processing in MCS patients without comorbid overlapping disorders and to compare the results with those among matched controls.

The study included 15 MCS patients and 15 healthy matched controls. The following aspects of pain were assessed: capsaicin-induced secondary punctate hyperalgesia, stimulus response function to punctate mechanical stimuli before and after capsaicin injection, temporal summation to punctate stimuli post capsaicin injection, pressure pain thresholds, heat pain thresholds, tonic heat stimulation and conditioning pain modulation (CPM: formerly known as diffuse noxious inhibitory control or DNIC). 


The study demonstrated increased capsaicin-induced secondary punctate hyperalgesia in MCS patients without comorbid, overlapping disorders, suggesting facilitated central sensitization in MCS.
