  1. Prospective study of risk factors in natural rubber latex hypersensitivity.

    Article - En anglais

    Five hundred sixty-nine subjects routinely underwent skin prick tests for latent sensitization to latex.

    The study of risk factors included skin tests to inhalant allergens, to diagnose atopy, and a questionnaire aimed at revealing frequent exposure to latex such as the wearing of gloves, multiple surgical procedures, or urinary catheterization.

    The subjects were categorized into five groups:

    • group I, subjects with no risk factor (n=272);

    • group II, nonatopic subjects exposed to latex (n=73);

    • group III, atopic subjects not exposed (n=180);

    • group IV exposed atopic subjects (n=44);

    • and group V, subjects with a history of intraoperative anaphylactic shock caused by latex (n=13).
