Blomia tropicalis allergen extract (four concentrations: 5, 0.5, 0.05, 0.005 mg/ml)
Biological: Four different concentrations of Blomia tropicalis allergen extract, positive control and negative control
Four concentrations of Blomia tropicalis allergen extract, together with a positive and negative control will be tested in every patient in duplicate on the volar surface of the forearm.
This is an open, unblinded and non-randomized biological assay. The study design is a slight modification of the recommendations proposed by the Nordic Guidelines.
Four concentrations of Blomia tropicalis allergen extract, together with a positive and negative control, using 10 mg/ml histamine dihydrochloride solution and a glycerinated phenol saline solution, respectively, will be tested in every patient in duplicate on the volar surface of the forearm.
