The Challenge of De-labeling Penicillin Allergy.

Even though 8-25% of most populations studied globally are labeled as penicillin allergic, most diagnoses of penicillin allergy are made in childhood and relate to events that are either not allergic ...

A Closer Look at Penicillin Allergy History: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Tolerance to Drug Challenge.

True allergy to penicillin is rare, despite the high frequency with which it is reported. While most patients reporting penicillin allergy are not prone to anaphylaxis, it is not currently known what...

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 h...

Self-reported beta-lactam intolerance: not a class effect, dangerous to patients, and rarely allergy.

About 8% of the United States population carries an unconfirmed penicillin "allergy" in their medical record. Many physicians needlessly avoid other beta-lactam use in individuals with unconfirmed pen...

Safety, Efficacy, and Clinical Impact of Penicillin Skin Testing in Immunocompromised Cancer Patients.

Use of penicillin skin testing (PST) to rule out penicillin (PCN) allergies is safe and effective in immunocompetent patients, however, data in immunocompromised patients are limited.

Penicillin Allergy Testing and Resensitization Rate

Penicillin is one of the earliest discovered antibiotics and a drug of choice for several infections. Up to 10 to 20% of all patients in clinical trial are labeled as penicillin allergic. ...

Allergy Testing of Patients Labeled as Penicillin Allergic

Patients labeled as penicillin allergic, rarely have this confirmed and being labeled as "penicillin allergic" is associated with increased health care costs, adverse effects and antibioti...

Semisynthetic antibiotic prepared by combining the sodium salt of penicillin G with N,N'-dibenzylethylenediamine.

A broad-spectrum penicillin antibiotic used orally in the treatment of mild to moderate infections by susceptible gram-positive organisms.

Semisynthetic antibiotic prepared by combining penicillin G with PROCAINE.

A penicillin derivative commonly used in the form of its sodium or potassium salts in the treatment of a variety of infections. It is effective against most gram-positive bacteria and against gram-negative cocci. It has also been used as an experimental convulsant because of its actions on GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID mediated synaptic transmission.
