Evaluation of the overall degree of sensitization to airborne allergens by a single serologic test : implications for epidemiologic studies of allergy.
In most epidemiologic studies of respiratory allergy, the overall degree of sensitization is usually measured by indices based on skin prick test reactions to a panel of relevant airborne allergens.
In the present study we used a single assay (CAP-Phadiatop, Pharmacia, Uppsala, Sweden), which is based on the reaction between serum-specific IgE and a mixture of locally relevant inhalant allergens to measure the degree of sensitization to inhalants in the sera of 1815 young Italien men, in whom a complete diagnostic workup for respiratoy allergy was performed in parallel.
