Since January 2001, the European Surveillance System on Contact Allergies (ESSCA), supported by European Union funding (contract QLK4‐CT‐2001‐00343), has started to collect patch‐test data. This comprises a standardized clinical history and the patch‐test results using the European standard series, from 17 centres in 9 European countries listed above. In 2002 and 2003, 10 511 patients' test results have been pooled and analysed. The anamnestic data partly reflect the subspecialties of some… Expand
[Changes in the European baseline series from 1981 to 2011 in a French dermatology-allergology centre].
TLDR
The prevalence of contact sensitization in a French centre between 1981 and 2011 was described to determine whether certain allergens may be deleted from the current BSE, but nickel sulphate sensitization is increasing despite recent European directives. Expand
The European Standard Series and its additions: are they of any use in 2013?
TLDR
Some allergens are obsolete and that others should be included in a new standard series for which the history of the European standard series has shown. Expand
European Standard Series patch test results from a contact dermatitis clinic in Israel during the 7‐year period from 1998 to 2004
TLDR
This study is the first to provide data on the frequency of sensitization and important allergens in the aetiology of ACD in Israel and concludes that ESS is an appropriate screening system for the diagnosis of ACd in Israel. Expand
Time trends in Swedish patch test data from 1992 to 2000. A multi‐centre study based on age‐ and sex‐adjusted results of the Swedish standard series
TLDR
Trends in sensitization rates of important allergen, reflecting changes in exposure, have been found and Nickel allergy is decreasing among young women. Expand
Trend in the variation of sensitization of the European standard battery allergens over 26 years
TLDR
Although the frequency of some BSE allergens sensitization tends to decrease, it remains high and consistent preventive measures should be focused, mainly on sensitization to perfumes and preservatives used in the cosmetic industry. Expand
Évolution de la batterie standard européenne de 1981 à 2011 dans un centre de dermato-allergologie français
TLDR
The prevalence of contact sensitization in a French centre between 1981 and 2011 to determine whether certain allergens may be deleted from the current BSE is described, but nickel sulphate sensitization is increasing despite recent European directives. Expand
Epidemiology of contact dermatitis in Spain. Results of the Spanish Surveillance System on Contact Allergies for the year 2008
TLDR
The profile of sensitizations in Spain is similar to that of other Southern European countries, and nickel sulfate continues to be the most prevalent allergen, particularly in women. Expand
An epidemiological study of allergic contact dermatitis in Greece: prevalence of sensitization to an adapted European baseline series’ allergens
TLDR
Nickel sulphate, fragrance mix and balsam of Peru were the most prevalent allergens in the total population, as well as with respect to gender, and Nickel is the most frequent allergen of baseline series. Expand
Risk factors for common contact allergens and patch test results using a modified European baseline series in patients tested during between 2000 and 2009 at Siriraj Hospital.
TLDR
The prevalence of contact sensitization appears to have not changed much during the decade and further study would provide a more comprehensive view of contact allergens in the region and lead to the creation of a local standard series. Expand
Patch‐Testing with the Standard Series at the Massachusetts General Hospital, 1998 to 2006
TLDR
Sensitivity rates and the most important allergens at MGH have been stable over the past 17 years and are similar to those of the North American and European contact dermatitis societies. Expand

The prevalence of contact allergy differed between population-based and clinic-based data.
TLDR
This locally matched comparison illustrates the differential effect of selection until presentation in dermatological departments. Expand

TLDR
Regular, descriptive analyses of data collected by this epidemiological surveillance system serve the different purposes discussed in this paper: 1) observation of "sentinel events"; e.g. an increase in the proportion of patients tested who were sensitized to a certain allergen, or the identification of certain subgroups at particular risk as a starting point for further research or preventive action.

Increase in sensitization to oil of turpentine: recent data from a Multicenter Study on 45,005 patients from the German‐Austrian Information Network of Departments of Dermatology (IVDK)
TLDR
The evaluation of standardized data of 45,005 patients tested 1992–1997 in 30 Dermatological Centers associated with the German‐Austrian Information Network of Departments of Dermatology (IVDK) showed an increase in positive patch test reactions to turpentine, which may be due to popular topical remedies or household chemicals. Expand
National rates and regional differences in sensitization to allergens of the standard series
TLDR
Overall standardized rates were well within the range reported in previous studies and may be regarded as representing the rates of the “patch test population” in Central Europe (e.g. nickel sulfate 12.9%, fragrance mix 10.5″, balsam of Peru 7.3%). Expand
Reproducibility of patch tests: comparison of identical test allergens from different commercial sources
TLDR
It is demonstrated that patch test preparations from 2 different companies exhibited a high level of reproducibility, and this standardized quality of test reagents from different suppliers provides useful information on several aspects of everyday practice. Expand
Contact Sensitization in Children
TLDR
Patch testing represents a useful diagnostic procedure for the definition of childhood eczematous dermatitis and for the identification of agents inducing contact sensitization which is frequently associated with atopic dermatitis. Expand

The selection of the most important contact allergens is subject to a continuous change. Several factors may influence the sensitization rates and thus the decision, which substances to include inExpand
Contact allergy to fragrances: frequencies of sensitization from 1996 to 2002. Results of the IVDK *
TLDR
A significant decline in sensitization to the FM is reported for the first time, very probably due to a reduced exposure (less potent allergens used in fine fragrances, possibly less use of natural ingredient‐based cosmetics and lowered use concentration of important fragrance allergens). Expand
Comparative multi-center study with TRUE Test and Finn Chamber Patch Test methods in eight Swedish hospitals.
TLDR
The investigation indicates that the TRUE Test method is simple to handle, is well standardized and gives good accuracy with the 12 allergens investigated. Expand
