, : Bee venom allergy: prevalence and degree of information of beekeepers and their families in the region of Sidi Slimane. Revue Francaise d' Allergologie et d' Immunologie Clinique 36(7): 771-774

Allergy to bee (Apis mellifera) venom is a quite frequent in beekeepers and their families who are exposed to bee stings daily. This study, conducted in Sidi Slimane, Morocco, between October 1992 and February 1993, aimed to evaluate the prevalence of allergic reactions to bee venom, to assess the extent of knowledge and to propose means of prevention and sanitary education for beekeepers and their families.
