June 5-9, 2010 Excel Center, Docklands, London, England. A team of US and EU researchers presented the findings of clinically based environmental factors that are little recognized by patients and even less so by environmental health workers employing the sC-1 protocol developed by the subClinical Research Group led by J Dumanov. sC-1 when employed answers many health questions never before asked and answered that are of immediate interest to the clinician and critical to the patient diagnostic.

This protocol uses air pump sampling, laser particle counters, microscopy of samples from ventilation system outlets and for visible mould colonies direct microscopy for laboratory identification, genomic methods, ELISA assay, measurement of physical parameters of air velocity and sustainable ventilation. For IAQ, equipment is used for the purpose of investigation: air pump for air cell sample collection, air gas composition analytical meter, colorometric indicators, hygrometer for vapor level measurement, tape lift sample and microscope slides for sample collection, staining of samples with standard commercially available stains including GMS, LPCB, and PAS. Real time PCR and molecular methods for speciation serum assay for select mycotoxins.
When we requested information from clinicians, it turned out that protocol results matched with results of that of some of physician's diagnostic tests of allergy sensitization in 73 % of patients. The improvement in their symptoms was observed in 82 % of those who took measures for reduction of the presence of causative agent as confirmed by a 6-9 month follow up by telephone questionnaire.
Subclinical investigations are a helpful tool for clinicians in diagnostic processes when they match results with clinical and laboratory investigations and history data. This improves the effectiveness in the ability to identify probable causative agent of allergic conditions.
