Performance characteristics of a new automated enzyme immunoassay for the measurement of allergen-specific IgE. Summary of the probability outcomes comparing results of allergen skin testing to results obtained with the HYTEC system and CAP system.
Measurement of allergen-specific IgE may assist in the diagnosis of allergy in selected patients. The development of new assays for determination of allergen-specific IgE should be optimized with respect to analytical sensitivity, precision, automation, and reporting of test results in mass units.
All patients had positive skin tests to some bakery allergens (wheat and rye flour, soybean flour, fungal enzymes and egg white proteins) and bronchial hyperresponsiveness to methacholine. Specific inhalation challenge (SIC) tests were performed with aqueous allergen extracts of cereal flour (n = 14...
