Allergen-specific IgE

John, M. (2016) Allergen-specific IgE. Medical Forum (WA), August .


Doctors are creatures of habit; over a decade ago the Radio-AllergoSorbent Test (RAST) was superseded by superior technologies for detecting immunoglobulin E (IgE), but "RAST" is still used most often in laboratory requests for allergy testing. "Allergen-specific IgE" is the correct term for allergy blood testing now and into the future.
