Guidelines for performing skin tests withdrugs in the investigation of cutaneous adverse drug reactions
Skin testing with a suspected drug has been reported to be helpful in determining the cause of cutaneous adverse drug reactions (CADR). Many isolated reports of positive drug skin tests areExpand

A multicentre study to determine the value and safety of drug patch tests for the three main classes of severe cutaneous adverse drug reactions
Background  Drug patch tests (PTs) can reproduce delayed hypersensitivity to drugs and entail a moderate re‐exposure of patients to offending drugs.

Skin testing in patients with hypersensitivity reactions to iodinated contrast media – a European multicenter study
Background:  Iodinated contrast media cause both immediate and nonimmediate hypersensitivity reactions. The aim of this prospective study was to determine the specificity and sensitivity of skinExpand

Management of hypersensitivity reactions to iodinated contrast media
All iodinated contrast media (CM) are known to cause both immediate (≤1 h) and nonimmediate (>1 h) hypersensitivity reactions. Although for most immediate reactions an allergic hypersensitivityExpand

Low negative predictive value of skin tests in investigating delayed reactions to radio‐contrast media
Delayed reactions to radio‐contrast media (RCM) with positive skin tests are rare. We report the study of a series of 15 patients who presented delayed reactions to RCM, with an analysis of theExpand

Role of delayed cellular hypersensitivity and adhesion molecules in amoxicillin-induced morbilliform rashes.
BACKGROUND Morbilliform rashes induced by amoxicillin are though to be caused by a delayed cell-mediated immune reaction. The importance of amoxicillin skin tests is not well defined. A betterExpand
