BackgroundAllergic rhinitis is a type I allergic disease of the nasal mucosa, and is characterized by paroxysmal sneezing, watery rhinorrhea, and nasal blockage. In seasonal allergic rhinitis subjects, even subthreshold allergen doses have been found to cause inflammatory cell infiltration in the nasal mucosa. This study aimed to investigate the presence of nasal obstructions and symptoms in seasonal allergic rhinitis subjects by assessing an exercise challenge test (ECT) outside of the pollen season.
