Atopy Patch Test in Normal Population : Pilot Study

2014-08-27 03:12:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Atopy patch test in normal population

Description

The initial diagnostic work up of suspected food allergy includes patient's history, skin prick test (SPT), measurement of food specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) with serological assays, and more recently the atopy patch test. A positive SPT seems to reflect early reactions to food challenges, whereas the atopy patch test has a high diagnostic efficacy for late phase clinical reactions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate atopy patch test reaction in non-atopic population.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A quantitative form of intradermal testing for the relative allergenicity of a substance. It is used to determine the amount of an allergen that will be tolerated in ALLERGEN IMMUNOTHERAPY.

An in vitro test used in the diagnosis of allergies including drug hypersensitivity. The allergen is added to the patient's white blood cells and the subsequent histamine release is measured.

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

A plant genus of the family POACEAE that contains the Poa p Ia allergen and allergen C KBGP.

A medicated adhesive patch placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of medication into the bloodstream.
