Abstract
Background and Objective : TDI is known to be the most prevalent cause of

occupational asthma (OA) in Korea. However, the pathogenesis of TDI-induced

occupational asthma still remains to be further clarified. So, we evaluated clinical

significance of serum specific IgG and IgE antibodies to TDI-HSA conjugate in

TDI-induced occupational asthma.

Subjects and Methods : Serum specific IgG and IgE antibodies to TDI-HSA conjugate

were measured by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. Serum was collected from 50

TDI- induced OA patients (classified as group Ⅰ), and was compared with that from 13

asthmatic subjects with negative TDI-bronchoprovocation test (BPT, group Ⅱ), allergic

asthmatics (group Ⅲ), and unexposed healthy controls (group Ⅳ).

Results : The prevalence of specific IgG was significantly higher in group Ⅰ than in

group Ⅱ (p=0.01) or group Ⅲ (p0.05). However, the prevalence of specific IgE was not

different between group Ⅰ and group Ⅱ (p>0.05) or group Ⅱ and group Ⅲ (p>0.05).

There was no significant difference in prevalence of specific IgG according to the

asthmatic response during TDI bronchoprovocation test (p>0.05). No statistical

significance was noted between specific IgG and IgE antibodies in group Ⅰ subjects

(p>0.05).

Conclusion : These findings demonstrate that presence of specific IgG to TDI-HSA

conjugate is closely related to TDI-BPT results and it may contribute to the

development of TDI-induced asthma.
