Delayed hypersensitivity skin testing of 150 volunteers. Retesting results and antibody measurements.

Abstract

We studied skin test reactivity to five commonly used antigens by testing 150 healthy adults. The delayed hypersensitivity (DH) skin test is widely used to assess the immune status of patients. The battery of antigens suitable for use may vary in different countries, but the reactivity to the antigens in our population did not differ remarkably from reports… (More)
