Background The North American Contact Dermatitis Group (NACDG) tests patients who have suspected allergic contact dermatitis with a broad series of screening allergens, and publishes periodic reports of its data. Objective To report the NACDG patch‐test results from January 1, 2005, to December 31, 2006, and to compare results to pooled test data from the previous 10 years. Methods Standardized patch testing with 65 allergens was used at 13 centers in North America. Chi‐square statistics were…

North American Contact Dermatitis Group Patch Test Results 2013–2014
TLDR
The NACDG patch testing results confirm that the epidemic of sensitivity to methylisothiazolinone previously documented in Europe is also occurring in North America.
North American Contact Dermatitis Group Patch Test Results: 2011–2012
TLDR
The NACDG patch-testing results document the beginning of the epidemic of sensitivity to methylisothiazolinones in North America, which has been well documented in Europe.
North American Contact Dermatitis Group Patch Test Results: 2015–2016
TLDR
The results confirm that the epidemic of sensitivity to methylisothiazolinone has continued in North America and that patch testing with allergens beyond a screening tray is necessary for a complete evaluation of occupational and nonoccupational ACD.
North American Contact Dermatitis Group Patch Test Results: 2017–2018
TLDR
Patch testing with allergens beyond a screening tray is necessary for complete evaluation of occupational and non-occupational ACD, and the importance of a regularly updated screening allergen series is demonstrated.
The Association of Race/Ethnicity and Patch Test Results: North American Contact Dermatitis Group, 1998–2006
TLDR
There were statistically different rates of positive patch test reactions to specific allergens between black and white patients suspected of having ACD, and the etiology of these differences is unclear but probably relates to culturally determined exposure patterns rather than genetic differences.
A multi-center, retrospective review of patch testing for contact dermatitis in allergy practices.
Shoe Allergens: A Retrospective Analysis of Cross-sectional Data From the North American Contact Dermatitis Group, 2005–2018
TLDR
Shoe contact allergy was more common in younger and male patients and testing supplemental allergens, personal care products, and shoe components should be part of a comprehensive evaluation of suspected shoe contact allergy.
Contact Dermatitis Associated With Skin Cleansers: Retrospective Analysis of North American Contact Dermatitis Group Data 2000–2014
TLDR
Many allergens, especially preservatives and surfactants, were associated with SCs, and most cases involved the hands and were occupationally related.
Occupationally Related Contact Dermatitis in North American Food Service Workers Referred for Patch Testing, 1994 to 2010
TLDR
Among FSWs patch tested by the NACDG between 1994 and 2010, the most common allergens were thiuram mix and carba mix, which were the most frequent currently relevant and occupationally related allergens.

North American Contact Dermatitis Group Patch‐Test Results, 2001‐2002 Study Period
TLDR
The findings of patch testing from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2002 reinforce the need for a more comprehensive group of diagnostic allergens than those found in the standard screening kits.
North American Contact Dermatitis Group Patch‐Test Results, 2003‐2004 Study Period
TLDR
Allergic contact dermatitis from nickel and budesonide may be increasing in North America, and the results again underscore the value of patch‐testing with many allergens.
North American Contact Dermatitis Group patch-test results, 1998 to 2000.
TLDR
The findings reinforce the need for a more comprehensive group of diagnostic allergens than is found in the T.R.E.U. TEST, which is sold in the United States.
Patch‐Testing North American Lip Dermatitis Patients: Data from the North American Contact Dermatitis Group, 2001 to 2004
TLDR
Patch testing is valuable in the evaluation and identification of contact allergy in patients referred for lip dermatitis, and the use of supplementary allergens based on history and exposure is important in the identification of additional relevant allergens.
Use of the North American Contact Dermatitis Group Standard 65‐Allergen Series Alone in the Evaluation of Allergic Contact Dermatitis: A Series of 794 Patients
TLDR
More extensive testing, including testing with suspected supplementary allergens determined by thorough history and physical examination, can improve upon the NACDG series as a means to investigate the full causes of contact dermatitis in any individual patient.
Common Contact Allergens Associated with Eyelid Dermatitis: Data from the North American Contact Dermatitis Group 2003‐2004 Study Period
TLDR
The top 26 allergens identified in this study represent a potential eyelid dermatitis screening series and represent the contact allergens most frequently found to be both patch test positive and relevant when only the eyelids are involved.
