TLDR
The Joint Task Force recognizes that experts in a field are likely to have interests that could come into conflictwith development of a completely unbiased and objective practice parameter, and a process has beendeveloped to prevent potential conflicts from influencing the final document in a negative way.

Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy
TLDR
General pediatricians should be aware of currently available options for both allergy testing and treatment of allergic disease, including immunotherapy, andrecognize what conditions can be treated with allergy immunotherapy and the different modalities currently available for pediatric patients.
History-taking requires interaction, and skin testing requires appropriate screening.
TLDR
Early consumption of peanuts in infancy is associated with a low prevalence of peanut allergy and household peanut consumption as a risk factor for the development of peanut allergies.
CD49d-expressing neutrophils differentiate atopic from nonatopic individuals.
TLDR
The transcription factor GATA3 is essential for the function of human type 2 innate lymphoid cells, and a novel antagonist of prostaglandin D2 blocks the locomotion of eosinophils and basophils.
Feasibility, Benefits, and Limitations of a Penicillin Allergy Skin Testing Service
TLDR
It is concluded that institutions with high percentages of patients receiving non–β-lactams because ofPenicillin allergy labels would likely benefit the most from a penicillin skin testing service.
Practice parameter A focused parameter update : Hereditary angioedema , acquired C 1 inhibitor deficiency , and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor – associated angioedema

TLDR
The utility of currently available tests is reviewed and suggestions on how to best use them to accurately predict peanut allergy are provided, with the physician-supervised oral food challenge remains the most definitive test available.

Skin prick/puncture testing in North America: a call for standards and consistency
TLDR
Despite consensus that all staff who perform SPT should meet basic quality assurance standards that demonstrate their SPT proficiency, the gap between recommendations and daily practice persists.

TLDR
Inimunologicai properties of conjugates of ragweed antigen E with methoxypolyethylene glycol or a copolytner of D-glutamic acid and D-lysine or aCopolytners ofD-glUTamic Acid and D -lysine are found.
The rational clinical examination. Is this patient allergic to penicillin? An evidence-based analysis of the likelihood of penicillin allergy.
TLDR
Only 10% to 20% of patients reporting a history of penicillin allergy are truly allergic when assessed by skin testing, so taking a detailed history of a patient's reaction toPenicillin may allow clinicians to exclude true penicillins allergy, allowing these patients to receive peniillin.
Cutting edge diagnostics in rheumatology: the role of patients, clinicians, and laboratory scientists in optimizing the use of autoimmune serology.
TLDR
To aid in developing a followup and therapeutic strategy in a given patient, the prognostic significance of identifying a certain autoantibody in a patient with clinical findings of an autoimmune disease should be known, and the clinical accuracy of certain laboratory diagnostic studies is still unknown.
Introduction to Molecular Cystic Fibrosis Testing
TLDR
The disease is reviewed and mutation testing indications, methodologies, quality assurance, and reporting issues associated with cystic fibrosis testing are discussed.
Precision of prick and puncture tests.
TLDR
Allergen extracts have been significantly improved within the past 15 years, and batch-to-batch reproducible extracts of known potency and shelf life are now available for many common aeroallergens and led to the greater use of prick and puncture tests and to the decreased use of intradermal skin tests for allergy diagnosis and epidemiologic studies.
History of penicillin allergy and referral for skin testing: evaluation of a pediatric penicillin allergy testing program.
TLDR
In this referral setting, true penicillin allergy was uncommon, suggesting that many children are incorrectly labelled asPenicillin-allergic.

TLDR
A large proportion of patients who have PCN-specific IgE antibodies, as determined by skin testing, have vague PCN allergy histories, indicating that patients with vague allergic histories should undergo PCN skin testing prior to PCN administration.
Skin‐prick testing as a diagnostic aid for childhood asthma
TLDR
The test characteristics of SPT for helping diagnose asthma in schoolchildren are good, and the prevalence of wheeze in preschool children is high, and so SPT should be helpful even in this group, and it is suggested that clinicians consider skin‐prick testing as a diagnostic aid for asthma.
Asthma features in severe alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency: experience of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Registry.
TLDR
Symptoms and signs of asthma are common in AAT deficiency and may start at the age of most rapid FEV(1) loss, and augmentation therapy is not more effective in preventing the loss of lung function in those with asthma compared to those without.
