Diagnosis of allergy for a particular individual involves a detailed clinical history and clinical exami- 30 Allergy and Allergen Immunotherapy: New Mechanisms and Strategies nation. When these tests do not provide confirmatory evidence of allergy, specific IgE antibody, histamine release and B-tryptase analyses by serological methods is essential. Nowadays these serve as an integral part of the diagnostic evaluation for a patient, since they clarify and provide a better picture about the patient’s state of sensitization.
Generally carefully chosen 30–35 allergen panel should be good enough to identify most important allergens in the community. , 2012). 9 INTERPRETATION OF A SPT It is extremely important to be able to correlate SPT results with clinical history to have a meaningful interpretation that can help your patients. Though it is possible that the larger the SPT wheal size, higher the clinical relevance, it is not true in many cases. There has to be a strong clinical history of having symptoms with temporal correlation with the antigen exposure.
Histamine released into the supernatant without addition of allergen is taken as control measurement and is subtracted to calculate the release of histamine specific to an allergen. A positive control is usually the addition of different dilutions of anti-IgE antiserum to the cells. There are two parameters for expressing histamine release results. (a) Cell sensitivity: concentration of allergen/antigen required to release 30–50% of total cellular histamine. (b) Cell reactivity: maximum amount of histamine release obtained with any amount of antigen.
