• Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) remain a common and major problem in healthcare. (hindawi.com)
  • Severe cutaneous adverse drug reactions (SCARs), such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS)/toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) with mortality rate ranges from 10% to more than 30%, can be life threatening. (hindawi.com)
  • In rare cases, some drugs are capable of inducing immune responses through interactions with MHC molecules, known as adverse drug reactions (ADRs). (hindawi.com)
  • Brucellin preparations for the intradermal test must be free of lipopolysaccharide and must not produce non-specific inflammatory reactions or interfere with serological tests. (fao.org)
  • Regardless of their individual experiences of cancer within the family, faith in the ability of mammography to detect a cancer at an early stage gave reassurance that a cancer diagnosis could lead to a positive outcome. (biomedcentral.com)
  • But late in 2004 we came to realize that some people in our program did not have HIV, so we re-tested a number of them-and identified almost 50 who were suspect for false positive HIV diagnosis. (plos.org)
  • This news was devastating, considering the consequences a false diagnosis can have on people's lives. (plos.org)
  • All patients with a suspected false diagnosis were counseled and re-tested using the confirmation test. (plos.org)
  • The new test is specific in confirming the diagnosis so when it's positive, we can be very sure it means allergy," Dr Alexandra Santos, an MRC Clinician Scientist at King's College London, said in a press release. (upi.com)
  • 7) Subsequent restimulation of these sensitized lymphocytes with the same or a similar antigen, such as the intradermal injection of TUBERSOL, evokes a local reaction mediated by these cells. (nih.gov)
  • The assay is sensitive and, unlike prior sandwich assays for the antigen, is not affected significantly by cross-reactions with rheumatoid factor. (google.com)
  • Reactions to the test include skin sensitivity, itching or constricting of the mouth, throat and airways, and digestive problems. (upi.com)
  • The reaction should be measured in millimeters of the induration (palpable, raised, hardened area or swelling). (cdc.gov)
  • An induration of 15 or more millimeters is considered positive in any person, including persons with no known risk factors for TB. (cdc.gov)
  • For persons who are otherwise at low risk and are tested at the start of employment, a reaction of ≥15 mm induration is considered positive. (drugs.com)
  • The reaction is read by measuring the diameter of induration (palpable raised, hardened area) across the forearm (perpendicular to the long axis) in millimeters. (wikipedia.org)
  • The person's medical risk factors determine at which increment (5 mm, 10 mm, or 15 mm) of induration the result is considered positive. (wikipedia.org)
  • The size of the induration considered to be a positive result depends on risk factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • An example of a false positive is a mammography result which suggests that a patient's has breast cancer, but subsequent. (ebscohost.com)
  • Some authorities are not using positive or negative controls and may be less careful about the preparation of the DNA probes. (koivet.com)
  • The excessive probes would be masked by the ligase reaction that closes the nick and forms a long DNA strand fully complementary to the hairpin domain. (rsc.org)
  • The probes then get opened and the toehold/branch-migration domains are not associated, prohibiting the CHA reaction and minimizing false-positive interferences. (rsc.org)
  • TST is contraindicated only for persons who have had a severe reaction (e.g., necrosis, blistering, anaphylactic shock, or ulcerations) to a previous TST. (cdc.gov)
  • Although he found the amount of precipitate directly proportional to the creatinine concentration, he also noted that the reaction was highly nonspecific and could be observed with many other organic compounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is no contraindication to repeating the TST, unless a previous TST was associated with a severe reaction. (cdc.gov)
  • The prevalence of a positive test for ACA in a sequential series of 412 such patients was reduced to 6.1% (95% confidence limits 4-9%) after subtraction of non-specific binding. (nih.gov)
  • The test is positive within one day of onset of symptoms and persists for days to weeks, and in one case persisted over 300 days ( JCM 1984;20:605). (lww.com)
  • Histamine accumulation occurred when PCR amplification of hdc was positive in all of fish samples tested and the presence of powerful histamine producers was confirmed by subsequent SSCP identification. (asm.org)
  • The Jaffe reaction, despite its nonspecificity for creatinine, is still widely employed as the method of choice for creatinine testing due to its speed, adaptability in automated analysis, and cost-effectiveness, and is the oldest methodology continued to be used in the medical laboratory. (wikipedia.org)
  • To evaluate the safety of Disperse blue 106 and Bronopol T.R.U.E. Test allergens in 20 adult subjects per allergen with a clinical history of contact dermatitis and a positive patch test to the respective reference allergen. (bioportfolio.com)
  • The Jaffe reaction is a colorimetric method used in clinical chemistry to determine creatinine levels in blood and urine. (wikipedia.org)
  • The skin test reaction should be read between 48 and 72 hours after administration. (cdc.gov)
  • The thinness of the stratum corneum and intermittent exposure to sweat on the eyelids have been associated with increased nickel absorption through the skin from cosmetics, allowing lower nickel concentrations to elicit a reaction [ 4 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • skin reactions (+1 or +2) in 70-90% of sensitive subjects. (bioportfolio.com)
