Clinical evaluation of allergic patients

About 600 patients had clinical symptoms, positive skin tests and/or specific IgE antibodies for the foods of interest. They were invited to participate in the study. Because of the high number of patients identified, even though a lot of patients declined participation, finally 405 patients were tested by DBPCFC or even identified as having had anaphylaxis to the food. Positive reactions were observed in 259 patients (101 to milk, 141 to egg and 17 to meat).
