The skin prick test – European standards
This manuscript reviews the available evidence and recommends the appropriate use of specific allergen extracts, positive and negative controls, and standard panels for different geographic locations to permit better comparisons for diagnostic, clinical and research purposes.

IgE to cross-reacting carbohydrate determinants are common among the allergic population and the binding to skin test negative allergenic extracts further confirms their poor biological activity.
Sensitization to fungi: epidemiology, comparative skin tests, and IgE reactivity of fungal extracts
Background Several fungal species are known to cause severe respiratory and cutaneous allergic diseases. Extracts from several allergenic fungi are used for in vivo and in vitro tests, as standard
Allergic cross‐reactivity: from gene to the clinic
The analysis of reactivity clusters in diagnosis allows the interpretation of the patient's reactivity profile as a result of the sensitization process, which often begins with exposure to a single allergenic molecule.
Lipid transfer protein (Ara h 9) as a new peanut allergen relevant for a Mediterranean allergic population.
The Role of Lipid Transfer Proteins in Allergic Diseases
Although Pru p 3 represents the predominant LTP in terms of patients’ IgE recognition, the contribution of pollen LTPs in primary sensitization cannot be ruled out andcule-based approaches in allergy research and diagnosis are important for better understanding of LTP allergy.
Position paper of the EAACI: food allergy due to immunological cross‐reactions with common inhalant allergens
The therapeutic potential of allergen immunotherapy with inhalant allergens in pollen‐related food allergy is not clear, and more placebo‐controlled studies are needed.
Cross‐sectional survey on immunoglobulin E reactivity in 23 077 subjects using an allergenic molecule‐based microarray detection system
This work has shown that the collection of a large number of IgE results at the same time in a single test can be carried out applying the test in the routine diagnostic work‐up.
Variability of IgE reactivity profiles among European mite allergic patients
The aim was to determine the frequencies of IgE reactivity to purified HDM allergen molecules in mite allergic patients from different parts of Europe in order to establish anAllergen panel for diagnosis of HDM allergy.
