Hypersensitivity to Penicillenic Acid Derivatives in Human Beings with Penicillin Allergy

Abstract

Multifunctional derivatives of penicillenic acid are effective elicitors of wheal-and-erythema skin responses in humans allergic to penicillin. Of the effective derivatives, penicilloyl-polylysines are particularly attractive as skin test reagents because they appear to be incapable of inducing antibody formation. The skin responses are specifically… (More)
