When is Phadiatop not indicated?
1) If strong suspicion of certain specific provoking allergens, test directly for allergen-specific IgE antibodies without prior atopy testing with Phadiatop to achieve highest sensitivity.
2) When non-atopic allergy is suspected, i.e. IgE antibodies primarily to allergens such as drugs, venoms and occupational allergens, which may provoke an IgE response only after excessive allergen exposure.
