What is this test?

Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis) is an extensively grown and consumed vegetable. To a lesser extent than other Liliaceae vegetables, allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) due to asparagus has been reported. However, only a few case reports of asparagus IgE-mediated allergy have been published. Patients underwent skin prick and patch tests with standard panels of vegetables and aeroallergens. Besides crude asparagus extract, two purified LTPs were prick and patch tested. Total and specific IgE measurements and asparagus extract IgE immunoblotting were performed. Asparagus is a relevant source of occupational allergy inducing ACD and also IgE-mediated reactions. Severe disease (anaphylaxis or asthma) is common and LTPs seem to play a major role. The clinical relevance of LTP sensitization among patients with mild disease or symptom-free subjects should be addressed in prospective studies.
