Effective management of allergic diseases relies on the ability to make an accurate diagnosis. Although clinicians rely on experience obtained over many years of practice, such experience is anecdotal and unique to the individual using it. The result is a tendency for patients with similar clinical presentations to receive different diagnoses and treatment, depending on which provider they happened to see. The probability that a patient has a particular diagnosis can be determined using a… 
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.
Allergen microbead arrays: the future of allergy diagnostics?
TLDR
There is a clear need for more flexible multi plex immunoassay platforms that could allow both the choice of controls (internal assay controls) or the introduction of customized allergenic molecules.
Guidelines in focus Anaphylaxis : diagnosis Authorship
TLDR
This guideline was reviewed by an independent group specialized in evidencebased clinical guidelines and the best publications were used for the recommendations.
INTERFERON GAMMA GENE POLYMORPHISM AS A MARKER OF SOME ALLERGIC DISEASES (ALLERGIC SKIN DISEASES AND ALLERGIC CONJUNCTIVITIS) IN A SAMPLE OF EGYPTIAN POPULATION
TLDR
The IFN-ɤ gene polymorphism at position +874 increases susceptibility to atopic diseases, and the identification of variants of the IFn-ɦ gene and their role in the development of atopic Diseases provides a focus for the developed of novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
Allergen Micro-Bead Array for IgE Detection: A Feasibility Study Using Allergenic Molecules Tested on a Flexible Multiplex Flow Cytometric Immunoassay
TLDR
The ABA assay represents a useful and flexible method for multiplex IgE detection using allergenic molecules and is suitable for detecting other human and non-human immunoglobulins.
Diamine oxidase enzyme: a novel biomarker in respiratory allergy
TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess the role of serum level diamine oxidase (DAO) enzyme as a diagnostic marker in respiratory allergy.
