Patients with suspected drug allergy
Patients with a history of allergic reaction to penicillin/aminopenicillin
Patients with a history of penicillin/aminopenicillin allergy will be evaluated by the standard skin test reagents (major and minor determinants of penicillin, amoxicillin, and clavulanic if applicable).
Diagnostic values of the measurement of specific IgE to penicillin/aminopenicillin and skin test reagents currently available in Thailand will be comparatively analyzed with the standard skin test reagents.
The measurement of drug-induced interferon-gamma releasing cells will be measured in patients with a history of non-immediate reaction.
