Summary of "Multicenter Australian Study to Determine Criteria for Low- and High-Risk Penicillin Testing in Outpatients."

Recent single-center studies promote oral penicillin challenges, without skin testing, in patients with low risk/likelihood of true allergy. However, how best to define a low-risk penicillin allergy history is uncertain.
