New guideline for the management of nut allergy helps to define diagnostic pathways

26-Sep-2017

A new guideline published recently by the Standards of Care Committee of the British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology (BSACI) aims to bring together the latest science in order to improve the diagnosis and management of peanut and tree nut allergy1. Developed using NICE-accredited processes and following extensive consultations with allergy organisations and experts, the step-by-step guideline includes algorithms to support the use of both skin-prick testing and IgE testing.  In particular, the guideline establishes the role of new molecular-based component-specific IgE testing as part of a comprehensive approach to diagnosis.   Please click here for full details.
