The objective of the present study is to describe any changes in the prevalence of sensitization to common contact allergens in patch‐tested patients over a 12‐year period. Attention is given to possible effects of preventive strategies introduced in Denmark regarding nickel and chromate sensitization during that period, and particular areas of concern are identified. Members of the Danish Contact Dermatitis Group collected patch‐test results from consecutive eczema patients as well as… Expand
Trends in allergy to the 10 most frequent contact allergens in patients examined at the Nofer Institute, Lodz, Poland in 1996-2009
TLDR
The analysis of the trend of contact allergy to 10 allergens showed a statistically significant decrease in prevalence of allergy to chromium, cobalt and formaldehyde and an increase in sensitization to nickel in the investigated group. Expand
Contact Sensitization to Allergens in the Spanish Standard Series at Hospital Costa del Sol in Marbella, Spain: A Retrospective Study (2005–2010) ☆
TLDR
The low level of sensitization to certain allergens such as most preservatives and sesquiterpene lactones may suggest that their use in standard patch test series should be reconsidered. Expand
[Contact sensitization to allergens in the Spanish standard series at Hospital Costa del Sol in Marbella, Spain: a retrospective study (2005-2010)].
TLDR
The results are similar to those previously reported for Spanish patients, but the low level of sensitization to certain allergens such as most preservatives and sesquiterpene lactones may suggest that their use in standard patch test series should be reconsidered. Expand
Risk factors for common contact allergens and patch test results using a modified European baseline series in patients tested during between 2000 and 2009 at Siriraj Hospital.
TLDR
The prevalence of contact sensitization appears to have not changed much during the decade and further study would provide a more comprehensive view of contact allergens in the region and lead to the creation of a local standard series. Expand
Contact Sensitization of Older Patients in an Academic Department in Naples, Italy
TLDR
The findings suggest an age‐dependent decline of overall positive patch‐test reactions but a higher sensitization rate to some allergens. Expand
Time trends in Swedish patch test data from 1992 to 2000. A multi‐centre study based on age‐ and sex‐adjusted results of the Swedish standard series
TLDR
Trends in sensitization rates of important allergen, reflecting changes in exposure, have been found and Nickel allergy is decreasing among young women. Expand
Prevalence of Contact Allergy at a Dermatology Clinic in China from 1990‐2009
TLDR
The patterns of contact allergy in patients from Peking University Hospital are different from those of patients in other regions of China, in European countries, and in the United States. Expand
Patch test reactions to cosmetic allergens in 1995–1997 and 2000–2002 in Finland – a multicentre study
TLDR
The present survey aimed at revealing the recent trends in patch test sensitivity with cosmetic chemicals in Finland concludes that surveys revealing the state of sensitivity to cosmetic chemicals should be performed periodically in different countries. Expand
Allergic contact dermatitis in Iran
TLDR
Nickel sulfate is the most common contact allergen in Iran, mostly affecting women and younger patients probably because of more exposure, and significantly more common in female patients and in patients under 40 years of age. Expand
Characteristics of nickel-allergic dermatitis patients seen in private dermatology clinics in Denmark: a questionnaire study.
TLDR
It is concluded that nickel allergy has decreased among young females with dermatitis due to the nickel regulation in Denmark. Expand

Contact sensitivity to chromate: comparison at a London contact dermatitis clinic over a 10‐year period
TLDR
There is no appreciable difference in the frequency of chromate sensitivity between the early 1980s and 1990s in London, and adding ferrous sulfate to cement may help to lower the frequency in the future. Expand
North American Contact Dermatitis Group patch test results for the detection of delayed-type hypersensitivity to topical allergens.
TLDR
The usefulness of patch testing is enhanced with the number of allergens tested, because allergens not found on the commercially available screening series in the United States frequently give relevant allergic reactions. Expand
The frequency of fragrance allergy in a patch‐test population over a 17‐year period
TLDR
The incidence of a concomitant positive patch test to balsam of Peru in fragrance‐sensitive patients showed wide variation, suggesting that it is not a reliable marker of fragrance allergy. Expand
Changing trends in the epidemiology of contact dermatitis in Singapore
TLDR
All patients seen in the Contact Dermatitis Clinic of the National Skin Centre, Singapore between January 1986 and December 1990 were analysed retrospectively and there were differences in the incidence of contact sensitivity to some allergens. Expand
Epidemiology of contact dermatitis. The information network of departments of dermatology (IVDK) in Germany.
TLDR
Regular, descriptive analyses of data collected by this epidemiological surveillance system serve the different purposes discussed in this paper: 1) observation of "sentinel events"; e.g. an increase in the proportion of patients tested who were sensitized to a certain allergen, or the identification of certain subgroups at particular risk as a starting point for further research or preventive action. Expand
Patch testing with markers of fragrance contact allergy. Do clinical tests correspond to patients' self-reported problems?
TLDR
The results suggest that the role of Peru balsam in detecting relevant fragrance contact allergy is limited, while most fragrance mix-positive patients are aware that the use of scented products may cause skin problems. Expand
Clinical patch test data evaluated by multivariate analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that patch test results can be compared only after stratification of the material or by multivariate analysis. Expand
Contact allergy to popular perfumes; assessed by patch test, use test and chemical analysis
TLDR
The frequency of contact allergy to the 10 best‐selling women's perfumes was studied in 335 consecutive female eczema patients by patch testing, and at least three of the chemically defined sensitizers in the fragrance mix were detected in all the perfumes by gas chromatography‐mass spectrometry, which indicates that the perfume mix is a good imitation of actual exposure. Expand
Chromium allergy in consecutive patients in a country where ferrous sulfate has been added to cement since 1981
TLDR
The aim of the study was to analyse a material of consecutive chromate‐sensitive patients in an urban tertiary referral centre with respect to primary cause of sensitization, in a geographical area where the risk of chromate exposure from cement had been reduced. Expand
Prevention of nickel allergy by regulation of specific exposures.
  • T. Menné
  • Medicine
  • Annals of clinical and laboratory science
  • 1996
TLDR
A legislation limiting nickel exposure from specific consumer items is in force in Denmark, and the biological significant parameter is not the nickel concentration in the alloy or coating but the amount released to the skin during exposure to human sweat. Expand
