Sensitization to 26 fragrances to be labelled according to current European regulation
To study the frequency of sensitization to 26 fragrances to be labelled according to current European regulation, patch tested additionally to the standard series in a total of 21 325 patients, Substances with higher sensitization frequencies were characterized by a considerable number of ‘++/+++’ reactions.
National rates and regional differences in sensitization to allergens of the standard series
Overall standardized rates were well within the range reported in previous studies and may be regarded as representing the rates of the “patch test population” in Central Europe (e.g. nickel sulfate 12.9%, fragrance mix 10.5″, balsam of Peru 7.3%).
