Food allergy: a clinician's criteria for including sera in a serum bank


Ballmer-Weber, B K; Fernández-Rivas, M (2008). Food allergy: a clinician's criteria for including sera in a serum bank. Food and Chemical Toxicology, 46(10 Sup):S2-S5.

Abstract

Safety assessment for genetically-engineered crop plants includes assessment for allergic responses. To facilitate this assessment, serum banks should contain well-characterised sera from patients with confirmed food allergies. A serum is defined as well-characterised if it is taken from a patient who has a convincing history of allergic responses to a known allergen or an allergen-containing food, a positive skin prick test (or elevated IgE response), and a positive response in a clinical food challenge.
