  • antigen
  • The intradermal test using as antigen a 1 per cent saline extract of Dirofilaria immitis powder was performed in Singapore on 69 persons with eosinophilic lung, 32 with mild eosinophilia, 49 with filariasis, 75 normal Asians, and 66 normal Britishers. (ajtmh.org)
  • The filarial complement fixation test using a 1 per cent alcoholic extract of the same antigen gave a positive rate of 100 per cent in the eosinophilic lung group, whereas only 24.5 per cent of the filariasis patients gave a positive reaction. (ajtmh.org)
  • With standardized technics and a Coca's extract of Schistosoma japonicum worms (Philippine-Leyte strain) at 27 to 30 µg N/ml as antigen, the intradermal test (immediate reaction) for schistosomiasis japonica in the Philippines showed an overall sensitivity of 88.2% among known infected individuals and a non-specificity of 3% among uninfected Filipinos. (ajtmh.org)
  • An antigen prepared from boiled hydatid cyst fluid (HF) was markedly more sensitive in the ID test than another prepared from whole HF but both produced false-positive reactions in three persons with other disease conditions. (ajtmh.org)
  • The IEP test yielded no false positives and its sensitivity was similar to the ID test using the more sensitive boiled HF antigen. (ajtmh.org)
  • Anaphylaxis
  • All patients should have available an Emergency Anaphylaxis Kit containing epinephrine and be instructed in its use for emergency treatment of possible systemic reactions occurring at times after the patient has departed the testing or treatment premises. (drugs.com)
  • Patch test: applying a patch to the skin, where the patch contains the allergen If an immuno-response is seen in the form of a rash, urticaria (hives), or (worse) anaphylaxis it can be concluded that the patient has a hypersensitivity (or allergy) to that allergen. (wikipedia.org)
  • antigens
  • In both methods, the following antigens provided a positive test result: Dermatophagoides farinae, Acarus siro, Tyrophagus putrescentiae, ragweed, mugwort and Lepidoglyphus destructor. (rda.com.tr)
  • cattle
  • This work was done to assess the performance of single intradermal comparative cervical tuberculin (SICCT) test in randomly selected cattle in Maroua, Cameroon, against detection of Tb lesions and detection of Tb lesions plus acid fast bacilli in lesions. (hindawi.com)
  • Widespread bovine Tb in cattle has been diagnosed in some parts of Cameroon following comparative cervical tuberculin test, detection of Tb lesions during abattoir slaughter meat inspection, acid fast staining of bacilli, and molecular analysis of cultured isolates [ 1 , 9 , 10 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Nr. 7600040 in the Netherlands was used in screening the cattle for Mycobacterium bovis infection using intra-dermal caudal fold tuberculin test. (scopemed.org)
  • This recommendation however, may require legislative action in order to make the herdsmen present their cattle for testing. (scopemed.org)
  • sensitivity
  • A perfect cut-off point in a specific geographic area or country may not be useful in another environment or another country [ 14 , 17 , 20 ] and the ability of the test to accurately predict true positive disease status depends on its sensitivity, specificity, and prevalence of the disease in the population tested [ 14 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • hypersensitivity
  • Immunotherapy for insect sting allergy should be given to those patients who have experienced significant systemic reactions (for detailed description of symptoms see INDICATIONS AND USAGE and ADVERSE REACTIONS ) from insect stings and who demonstrate hypersensitivity by skin testing with these products. (drugs.com)
  • patients
  • 85.7% of the suspected ACD patients, 57.9% of the suspected UEE patients and 52.4% of the suspected NACU patients were positive on patch testing, and the results in 81.0% of the suspected ACD patients and 23.6% of the suspected UEE patients were considered relevant. (biomedsearch.com)
  • No patch test reactions in the NACU patients were considered relevant. (biomedsearch.com)
  • High positive rates on aeroallergen intradermal testing were also found in suspected NACU (69.0%), UEE (49.0%) and ACD (59.1%) patients. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The only approved method for diagnosing insect sting allergic patients for immunization is by skin testing. (drugs.com)
  • antibody
  • The blood is tested to detect the presence of a certain IgE antibody that occurs in allergic pets when the blood is in contact with the suspected allergen. (vetinfo.com)
  • symptoms
  • Celiac Disease Symptoms What testing is available for celiac disease? (celiac.com)
  • So if any of the following symptoms are experienced, a physician consultation is recommended immediately: Low grade Fever Lightheadedness or dizziness Wheezing or Shortness of breath Extensive skin rash Swelling of face, lips or mouth Difficulty swallowing or speaking Even though skin testing may seem to be a benign procedure, it does have some risks, including swollen red bumps (hives) which may occur after the test.

  • detection
  • He is also known for the Frei Test, which was developed in 1925 for the detection of lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV). (wikipedia.org)
  • patch
  • 63 cases of suspected ACD, 140 cases of suspected UEE and 21 cases of suspected NACU were patch tested with the standard series of Beijing Medical University and, if available, suspected materials as is. (biomedsearch.com)
  • scans
  • Chest X-rays and CT scans, raised blood levels of IgE and eosinophils, immunological tests for Aspergillus together with sputum staining and sputum cultures can be useful. (wikipedia.org)
  • cases
  • The test was positive in 100 per cent of the cases of eosinophilic lung, 73.5 per cent of the filariasis group, 59.4 per cent of cases of mild eosinophilia, 53.3 per cent of normal Asians, and 4.5 per cent of the Britishers. (ajtmh.org)
  • However, in some cases it is difficult to pinpoint the exact allergen, so tests are needed. (vetinfo.com)
  • In all cases where the test is positive, the skin will become raised, red and appear itchy. (wikipedia.org)

  • Infection
  • On the other hand, the "skin scrape test" is painless, does not leave residual pigmentation and does not have a risk of infection, since it is limited to the superficial layer of the skin. (wikipedia.org)
