Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The skin testing results of Cephalosporin skin test compared to ELISPOT assay [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The result of cross reactivity between Cephalosporins and other Betalactams determined by skin testing and ELISPOT assay [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

PBMCs and serum will be collected for further analysis, if indicated

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Cephalosporins allergic patients Procedure: Skin tests and ELISPOT assay
Patch test and/or intradermal test will be performed in patients as well as cytokine secretions from PBMCs will be analyzed by ELISPOT assay
Other Names:
  • Patch test
  • Intradermal test
  • ELISPOT

Detailed Description:

Patients with a history of non-immediate reactions to cephalosporins will be tested by patch test and/or intradermal test. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells will be collected to analyzed cytokine secretions by ELISPOT assay
