A consensus protocol for the determination of the threshold doses for allergenic foods: how much is too much?
|Published in||Clinical and experimental allergy. 2004, vol. 34, no. 5, p. 689-95|
|Abstract||While the ingestion of small amounts of an offending food can elicit adverse reactions in individuals with IgE-mediated food allergies, little information is known regarding these threshold doses for specific allergenic foods. While low-dose challenge trials have been conducted on an appreciable number of allergic individuals, a variety of different clinical protocols were used making the estimation of the threshold dose very difficult.|
