Abstract

Background: Allergic reactions to antibiotics are common in daily clinical allergy practice. Oral drug provocation tests (ODPT) are used to determine safe alternative antibiotics in addition to diagnostic purposes. In one of our previous studies, we have shown that triple test was a safe, time-saving and cost-effective method for determining safe alternatives for patients with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) hypersensitivity.
