BACKGROUND New in vitro diagnostic methods for IgE-mediated drug allergic reactions, such as basophil activation test and antigen specific sulfidoleukotriene test, have proven their usefulness in patients with positive skin tests. OBJECTIVE To assess the usefulness of basophil activation test and antigen specific sulfidoleukotriene test in the diagnosis… CONTINUE READING
