Skin disorders in amputees.
Dermatologic problems are common in prosthetic limb users and allergic contact dermatitis is a significant problem, and all patients with dermatitis on the residual limb should be patch tested. Expand
Contact allergy to (meth)acrylates in the dental series in southern Sweden: simultaneous positive patch test reaction patterns and possible screening allergens
Contact allergy to dental allergens is a well‐studied subject, more so among dental professionals than dental patients, and screening for (meth)acrylate contact allergy with 2‐HEMA alone and the addition of bis‐GMA in dental patients would increase the pick‐up rate to 100%. Expand
Variation in allergen content over time of acrylates/methacrylates in patch test preparations
There might be a gradual decrease in acrylate/methacrylate allergen content over time in patch test preparations but this has not yet been documented. Expand
Contact allergic reactions to diphenylthiourea and phenylisothiocyanate in PVC adhesive tape
28 patients reacting to a PVC adhesive tape used in routine patch testing gave positive reactions to diphenylthiourea (DPTU) and to phenylisothiocyanate (PITC) in low concentrations. DPTU is a heatExpand
Screening for acrylate/methacrylate allergy in the baseline series: our experience in Sweden and Singapore
The prevalence of contact allergy to acrylates/methacrylate in patch tested populations has not been determined and no studies to specifically determine the prevalence have been published. Expand
Contact allergy to 5,5′‐di‐tert‐butyl‐2,2′‐dihydroxy‐(hydroxymethyl)‐dibenzyl ethers, sensitizers in p‐tert‐butylphenol‐formaldehyde resin
2 isolated substances were shown to be allergens in PTBP‐F‐R, 5,5′‐di‐tert‐butyl‐2,2′‐dihydroxy‐3,3′‐ dihydroxymethyl‐dibenzyl ether and 5, 5′‐ di‐terrt‐ butyl‐ 2,2 • dihYDroxy‐ 3,3‐hydroxymethy‐diberzyl ether. Expand
Patch testing of patients allergic to Disperse Blue 106 and Disperse Blue 124 with thin‐layer chromatograms and purified dyes
Background:  Former investigations have demonstrated that patch test preparations containing Disperse Blue (DB) 106 and DB 124 are impure.
Mutagens in larger fungi. I. Forty-eight species screened for mutagenic activity in the Salmonella/microsome assay.
Specimens of large fungi (mushrooms) were screened for mutagenic activity by the Salmonella/microsome assay, with strains TA98, TA2637 and TA100 exhibiting a significant but for the most part weak activity. Expand
Allergic contact dermatitis caused by methylisothiazolinone from different sources, including ‘mislabelled’ household wet wipes
A 39-year-old non-atopic nurse was referred to the contact allergy unit in November 2012 because of eczematous skin lesions on the arms, neck and trunk of 7-month duration, which reappeared after this treatment had been stopped. Expand
Contact allergy to phenol‐formaldehyde resins
A battery of phenol‐formaldehyde resins should be used for screening purposes, since patch testing with the paratertiary‐butyl phenol-formaldehyde resin is not sufficient to identify patients with contact allergy to phenol •formaldehyde Resins. Expand
