Artemisia vulgaris allergen extract(four concentrations 10, 1, 0,1 y 0,01 mg/ml) Positive Control Negative Control
Biological: Artemisia vulgaris
Four concentrations of Artemisia vulgaris allergen extract, together with a positive and negative control will be tested in every patient in duplicate on the volar surface of the forearm.
Other Name: Four different concentrations of Artemisia vulgaris allergen extract, positive control and negative control
This is an open, unblinded and non-randomized biological assay. Tehe study design is a slight modification of the recommendations proposed by the Nordic Guidelines.
Four concentrations of Artemisia vulgaris 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.
