BACKGROUND Children with atopic dermatitis (AD) are at risk of developing allergy. Alongside clinical history, testing modalities include skin prick tests (SPT), specific immunoglobulin-E (sp-IgE) and recently, microarray assays. The aim of this pilot study was to assess current tests and the ISAC sIgE-112 system in the diagnosis of food and aeroallergen allergy. METHODS Children aged 0-11 years with moderate to severe AD were included. An initial allergy assessment including clinical history… CONTINUE READING
