Penicillin Allergy | The Diagnosis of Penicillin/Aminopenicillin Allergy in Thailand
Penicillin Allergy research study
What is the primary objective of this study?
The true prevalence of drug allergy in patients with a history of penicillin/aminopenicillin allergy will be determined by using commercially available standard skin test reagents and the diagnostic agents available in Thailand. We hypothesize that only minority of patients with such a history are truly allergic.
