Abstract

Positive standardized food challenges represent the gold standard of diagnostic procedures in food-related reactions suspected to be of allergic nature. Skin prick testing and in-vitro diagnosis is helpful in most cases and can help to avoid cumbersome food challenges. This review considers recent progress in the use of in-vitro tests in the diagnosis of food allergy.
