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 ...
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...
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...
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...
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.
The purpose of this study is to estimate the prevalence of penicillin allergy, evaluate the diagnostic value of the allergologic work-up used in the study, and the health effects of penici...
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. ...

An enzyme catalyzing the hydrolysis of penicillin to penicin and a carboxylic acid anion. EC 22.214.171.124.

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.
The term allergy is used to describe a response, within the body, to a substance, which is not necessarily harmful in itself, but results in an immune response and a reaction that causes symptoms and disease in a predisposed person, which in turn can cau...
