Hev b 5 and Hev b 13 as allergen markers to estimate the allergenic potency of latex gloves.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Sensitization to natural rubber latex has been linked to proteins from medical latex gloves. Various assays to estimate the amount of residual allergenic proteins extractable from latex gloves to assess their potential exposure hazard have inherent weaknesses. OBJECTIVE This investigation was aimed at developing 2-site immunoenzymetric assays… (More)
