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.
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).
Antiretroviral drug hypersensitivity in HIV patients is common. Publications have shown that Abacavir (ABC) patch testing is useful in confirming ABC hypersensitivity in 24-50% of cases with a 100% sensitivity of HLA-B*5701 in patch test positive cases. However, Nevirapine (NVP) patch testing has not been reported.
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...
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 ...
To detect common skin-sensitizing agents among patients experiencing allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). Methods: This was a retrospective study of 152 patients with clinically suspected ACD who underwent patch testing in an allergy clinic at King Khalid University Hospital, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia between January 2012 and February 2015. Of these patients, only 74 (48%) patients reacted to one or more contact allergens. This group of patients included 58 (78.4%) women and 16 (21.6%) men (mean age:...
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.
Since the 1988 publication of Hembree's seminal meta-analysis on test anxiety, much has changed in the theoretical conceptualization of test anxiety, as well as the influences on test performance. The present study examined the influence of test anxiety on a variety of educational outcomes, in addition to demographic and intrapersonal correlates.
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 Kastle-Meyer (KM) test is a quick and easy chemical test for blood used in forensic analyses. Two practical variations of this test are the KM-rub (indirect) test and the more sensitive KM-direct test, the latter of which is performed by applying reagents directly to a suspected blood stain. This study found that sodium hydroxide present in the KM reagents eliminated the potential to generate a DNA profile when applied directly to small quantities of blood. A modified approach to the KM-rub test that in...
Propylene glycol (PG), an emollient and emulsifier found in cosmetics, medications, and food, has been granted the dubious honor of being named the American Contact Dermatitis Society's Allergen of the Year for 2017. Allergic and irritant contact dermatitis and systemic cutaneous reactions to PG, which has become an increasingly common ingredient, have been documented. Propylene glycol is as contentious as it is ubiquitous because it acts as both a weak sensitizer and an irritant, confounding the results of...
We analyzed the accuracy of Chagas Quick Test(®), a rapid diagnostic test, for the diagnosis of chronic Chagas disease through a retrospective study on a cohort of 669 patients consecutively examined at a single reference center in Italy, during a 7-year period. We observed high concordance with serological reference standard but low accuracy for screening purposes (sensitivity/specificity: 82.8%/98.7%) at least in our nonendemic context.
In children, exercise-induced dyspnea is a common symptom that can be due to dysfunctional breathing. EVH test has bee used especially in elite athletes as bronchoprovocation test. Currently, there are only few studies on the EVH test. New research methods are required alongside the traditionally used tests especially due to dysfunctional breathing disorder.
To use a modified direct contact test (DCT) to evaluate the bacterial growth on 3 commercially available implants.
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...
To assess the test-retest reliability of the polysomnography-multiple sleep latency test (PSG-MSLT) diagnostic classification and measures, and to study the determinants of its variability in patients with narcolepsy type 1 (NT1) or with non-cataplectic central disorders of hypersomnolence (NCHS): type 2 (NT2), idiopathic hypersomnia (IH) and unspecified hypersomnolence (UnsEDS).
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...
Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis is widely used to describe the discriminatory power of a diagnostic test to differentiate between populations having or not having a specific disease, using a dichotomous threshold. In this way, positive and negative likelihood ratios (LR+ and LR-) can be calculated to be used in Bayes' way of estimating disease probabilities. Similarly, LRs can be calculated for certain ranges of test results. However, since many diagnostic tests are of quantitative nature, ...
The Home Hearing Test (HHT) is an automated pure-tone threshold test that obtains an air conduction audiogram at five test frequencies. It was developed to provide increased access to hearing testing and support home telehealth programs.
This study aimed to develop a computerized adaptive test (CAT) for gross motor skills (GM-CAT) as a diagnostic test and an outcome measure, using the gross motor subtest of the Comprehensive Developmental Inventory for Infants and Toddlers (CDIIT-GM) as the candidate item bank. Moreover, we examined the psychometric properties and the efficiency of the GM-CAT.
