Verified June 2017 by Haukeland University Hospital
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Haukeland University Hospital
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT03182491
First received: June 7, 2017
Last updated: June 19, 2017
Last verified: June 2017
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to explore different mechanisms for anaphylaxis and find novel biomarkers for this hypersensitivity syndrome. The study participants are patients with anaphylaxis, patients with mild allergic reactions, and patients with febrile transfusion reactions. The investigators will also include a group of healthy controls.

Condition Intervention
Anaphylaxis Allergy Transfusion Reaction Febrile Transfusion Reaction Diagnostic Test: Biomarkers (platelet activating factor [PAF], anaphylatoxins) and basophil activation test (BAT)

Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
Study Design: Observational Model: Other
Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 2 Days
Official Title: Mechanisms of Anaphylaxis
