Effects of food additives on leukocyte histamine release in normal and urticaria subjects

Effects of food additives on leukocyte histamine release in normal and urticaria subjects

Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London 21(4): 251-256

Eighteen persons were studied of whom 7 (4 male and 3 female) were atopic. Control atopic subjects were defined as adults having a positive skin prick test to mixed grass pollen, house dust mite or cat fur and whose past symptoms included asthma, rhinitis or conjunctivitis. Twelve patients with at least a 12-week history of chronic, recurring urticaria or with angioneurotic oedema were also studied.
