High levels of shrimp-specific IgE, in association with a positive prick test, are not always predictive of a positive, immediate response to double-blind, placebo-controlled, food challenge (DBPCFC) with shrimp. The observation that shrimp-sensitive individuals in general have increased levels of circulating shrimp-specific IgG is of interest because… CONTINUE READING
