In most epidemiologic studies of respiratory allergy, the overall degree of sensitization is usually measured by indices based on skin prick test reactions to a panel of relevant airborne allergens. In the present study we used a single assay (CAP-Phadiatop, Pharmacia, Uppsala, Sweden), which is based on the reaction between serum-specific IgE and a mixture of locally relevant inhalant allergens to measure the degree of sensitization to inhalants in the sera of 1815 young Italian men, in whom a… CONTINUE READING
