This study aims to compare the readings of skin testing results in patients with suspected penicillin allergy between in-house penicillin test preparation and commercial available penicill...

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...

The Effect of Providing Stratification of Low Risk Penicillin Allergies on Penicillin Allergy Label Removal

Currently it is estimated that at least 25 million people in the United States are labeled as penicillin allergic although less than 1.5 million of these are truly allergic. Although combi...

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 ...

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.

Patient and primary care physician perceptions of penicillin allergy testing and subsequent use of penicillin containing antibiotics: A qualitative study.

Removal of an inaccurate penicillin allergy record following testing allows patients to access first-line treatment for infections, and reduce use of broad spectrum antibiotics which contribute to ant...

Direct oral amoxicillin challenge without preliminary skin testing in adult patients with allergy and at low risk with reported penicillin allergy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

An enzyme catalyzing the hydrolysis of penicillin to penicin and a carboxylic acid anion. EC 3.5.1.11.

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.
