Reproducibility of skin sensitivity using a quantitative skin prick test



Reproducibility of skin sensitivity using a quantitative skin prick test



Allergy (Copenhagen) 40(6): 400-404



The reproducibility of repeated quantitative skin prick test titrations was evaluated in seven asthmatic patients tested 2-4 times within 6 weeks. The skin sensitivity was estimated as endpoint titration and histamine equivalent reaction using both 1 and 10 mg/ml histamine dihydrochloride. The histamine equivalent reaction had a significantly higher reproducibility compared to endpoint titration, with a coefficient of variation less than 10% for histamine 10 mg/ml.
