Clinical & Experimental Allergy, 03/31/2011
Johannsen H et al. – A skin prick tests<7 mm and fluorescent–enzyme immunoassays<2 kU/L identify children most likely to tolerate peanut, with only a 5% likelihood of failing an oral challenge. This study assists clinicians considering challenges in very young peanut–sensitized children.
