  • An association between allergies to latex proteins and to various foods has been reported and confirmed by RAST and immunoblotting inhibition. However, no significant data had been collected on the frequency of specific IgE antibodies to fruits in these patients and the frequency of a history of fruit intolerance. Serum samples of 136 patients with well‐documented, clinically relevant, immediate‐type hypersensitivity against latex proteins were analyzed for IgE antibodies against a panel of… CONTINUE READING
