INTRODUCTION The immune responses in patients with novel A(H1N1) virus infection (nvA(H1N1)) are incompletely characterized. We investigated the profile of Th1 and Th17 mediators and interferon-inducible protein-10 (IP-10) in groups with severe and mild nvA(H1N1) disease and correlated them with clinical aspects. METHODS Thirty-two patients hospitalized(More)
PURPOSE Basophil activation occurs both in patients with immediate hypersensitivity reactions to anti-inflammatory drugs and in healthy controls in a dose-dependent manner. Our aims were to define the optimal basophil activation test (BAT) concentration and the threshold for BAT positivity for dipyrone. METHODS From 45 patients with a positive history of(More)
BACKGROUND Several different criteria for the positivity of the flow-assisted Basophil Activation Test (BAT) for the diagnosis of Neuromuscular Blocking Agents (NMBA) hypersensitivity reactions have been used in past studies. Our aims were to determine the threshold for BAT positivity expressed as the stimulation index (SI, calculated as the percentage of(More)
AIM Immediate-type hypersensitivity drug reactions are frequently under-reported, epidemiological data being imprecise. The aim of our study was to identify the drugs involved and to describe the clinical characteristics of previous immediate-type hypersensitivity reactions in a large series of Romanian surgical patients, and to establish the concordance(More)
