Allergic contact dermatitis is a challenging diagnostic problem in children. Although epicutaneous patch testing is the diagnostic standard for confirmation of contact sensitization, it is less used in children by dermatologists treating children, pediatric dermatologists, and pediatricians, when compared with adult practitioners.
Aeroallergens and food allergens are found to be relevant in atopic dermatitis. The atopy patch test (APT) can help to detect food allergies in children with atopic dermatitis. This study evaluates if the APT is a valuable tool in the diagnostic workup of children with food allergy-related atopic dermatitis.
Allergic contact dermatitis is associated with significant disease and economic burden in the United States. To properly manage allergic contact dermatitis, it is important to accurately identify the substance(s) implicated in the dermatitis to prevent disease recurrence. The commercially available T.R.U.E Test (36 allergens) screening panel has been reported to have a conservative hypothetical allergen detection rate of 66.0%, at most. Importantly, these calculations are based on the 78% of patients who ha...
Patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) have increased penetration of allergens, immune dysregulation (including shared cytokine pathways), and frequent use of emollients and topical medications, all of which may predispose toward developing allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). Recent systematic reviews have suggested that ACD is a significant clinical problem in both children and adults with AD. While this remains controversial, ACD remains an important comorbidity and potential exacerbant of AD in clinical pra...
Atopy is a genetic predisposition to the development of allergic reactions and the increased production of immunoglobulin E (IgE) upon exposure to environmental antigens. Clinical manifestations of atopy include asthma, atopic dermatitis (AD), and allergic rhinoconjunctivitis (ARC).
Studies have shown that not all positive patch test reactions are reproducible upon retesting, that is, persistent. Non-persistent reactions might represent initial false-positive reactions, meaning that patients might unnecessarily avoid allergens.
Three physical examination tests are most commonly used to evaluate cruciate ligament injury. The best known and most frequently used technique is the anterior drawer test. The other 2 tests, the Lachman test and the pivot shift test, are more difficult to perform and are used less often, especially by physicians untrained in their use. In addition, there is a relatively new diagnostic test: the lever sign test. The aim of our article is to provide a short, clinically relevant overview of the literature and...
Understanding diagnostic test outcomes requires determining the positive predictive value (PPV) of the test, which most laypeople and medical professionals struggle to do. Despite advances found with frequency formats and visual aids, less than 40% of people can typically identify this value. This study tests the impact of using congruent reference classes in problem-question pairings, evaluates the role of numeracy, and assesses how diagnostic value estimates affect the reported likelihood to use the test.
Present screening methods to rapidly detect release of nickel and cobalt ions from metallic surfaces involve colorimetric dimethylglyoxime (DMG)- and disodium-1-nitroso-2-naphthol-3,6-disulfonate-based spot tests with a cotton bud. There is a risk of false-negative test reactions because test outcomes are dependent on the pressure, area, and duration of surface wiping.
The triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) has become one of the strongest candidates for sustainable power sources. The power of a TENG depends on factors such as contact area, contact parallelism, contact force, and contact speed. In order to evaluate the performance of the TENG precisely and quantitatively, it is necessary to apply consistent experimental conditions and measurement processes. In this paper, we propose a test bed capable of adjusting the contact area and contact parallelism and measuring the ...
Video-head impulse test (V-HIT) is more and more becoming a routine test in patients with vertigo, contributing information about the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR). According to Ewald's second law, the unilateral pathological test points to this side's peripheral organ as being diseased. The value in clinical routine is still unclear.
The objective of the study was to determine the diagnostic yield of the indirect immunofluorescence (IFI) test for the detection of antibodies against HTLV-1. A diagnostic test evaluation study was performed. HTLV-1-infected MT2 cells and HTLV-1-uninfected K-562 cells were cultured; then these cells were impregnated and fixed in sheets for immunofluorescence and faced to Peruvian sera. A total of 155 sera (80 HTLV-1-positive sera and 75 sera positive for other diseases) from the Peruvian Instituto Nacional ...
Food allergy is common and the prevalence is increasing. The pathogenesis of food allergy has been extensively reviewed. Immunologic and clinical tolerance to food requires production of regulatory T cells that are food-antigen specific. Loss of tolerance to food can lead to IgE-mediated reactions and non-IgE-mediated reactions. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
Fecal immunochemical test (FIT) is a promising marker for assessment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) activity. However, the utility of FIT for predicting mucosal healing (MH) of Ulcerative Colitis (UC) patients has yet to be clearly demonstrated. The objective of our study was to perform a diagnostic test accuracy test meta-analysis evaluating the diagnostic accuracy of FIT in predicting MH of UC patients.
The development of an in vitro diagnostic test from a good idea to a clinically relevant tool takes several steps, with more stringent requirements at every step.
Screening pregnant women for HIV and syphilis is recommended by WHO in order to reduce mother-to-child transmission. We evaluated the field performance, feasibility, and acceptability of a dual rapid diagnostic test (RDT) for HIV and syphilis test in antenatal clinic settings in Nigeria.
The A-test is used in daily clinical practice for monitoring functional recovery of orthopedic patients during early rehabilitation. The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of A-test and cutoff point at which the test can separate patients with and without functional disability at the end of early rehabilitation. Also, it was important to determine whether A-test has that discriminative ability (and at which cutoff points) in the first days of early rehabilitation in order to have time to plan p...
Liquid-based cytology (LBC) has replaced the conventional Papanicolaou test in cervical cancer screening. The cervical swab specimens collected in LBC media can also be used for additional analyses including high-risk HPV (HR-HPV) test, DNA methylation analysis, and HPV E6/E7 mRNA test.
Molecular imaging technologists are faced with statistics on a daily basis because they image patients who have been selected for diagnostic testing based on analysis of how well the test performs, and because technical factors can influence the performance of any diagnostic test. Choosing what test procedure to perform on which patient is a matter of understanding the patient's pretest likelihood of disease, the performance characteristics of the diagnostic test, and other clinical factors which may impact...
Diagnosis and treatment are central elements of strategies to control Trypanosoma brucei gambiense human African trypanosomiasis (HAT). Serological screening is a key entry point in diagnostic algorithms. The Card Agglutination Test for Trypanosomiasis (CATT) has been the most widely used screening test for decades, despite a number of practical limitations that were partially addressed by the introduction of rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs). However, current RDTs are manufactured using native antigens, which ...
The classic parameters used to assess the accuracy of a binary diagnostic test (BDT) are sensitivity and specificity. Other parameters used to describe the performance of a BDT are likelihood ratios (LRs). The LRs depend on the sensitivity and the specificity of the diagnostic test, and they reflect how much greater the probability of a positive or negative diagnostic test result for individuals with the disease than that for the individuals without the disease. In this study, several confidence intervals a...
