Hyposensitization in bee and wasp allergy

Hyposensitization in bee and wasp allergy

Ugeskrift for Laeger 143(31): 1963-1966

Patients (17) with previous severe allergic reactions after bee and/or wasp stings were investigated. Skin prick and RAST [radioallergosorbent test] tests were performed with the purified venoms from honeybee and yellow jacket (Pharmacia insect venoms) and 3 patients were classified as allergic to honeybees, 5 allergic to yellow jackets and 9 as allergic to both honeybees and yellow jackets. Rush-hyposensitization was started with the respective allergens but a slower injection rate than anticipated was necessary in all cases because of local and systemic side-effects. In 9 patients, it was not possible to reach the recommended maintenance dose of 100 .mu.g insect venom and in these cases injections should be given more frequently. The treatment seems to provide good protection in insect-sting allergy.
