The World Allergy Organization (WAO) in 2003 defined ‘drug allergy’ as an immunologically mediated drug hypersensitivity reaction. Most drug reactions are pharmacological reactions rather than hypersensitivity reactions.
Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) which account for 3 to 6% of all hospital admissions and occur in 10 to 15% of hospitalized patients, result in morbidity, prolonged hospitalization and risk of mortality.
A simple blood test may help to predict adverse reactions in the treatment of a broad range of conditions like epilepsy, AIDS, gout and infections.
A collaborative research team led by the University of Melbourne and Monash University has discovered why people develop life-threatening allergies after receiving treatment for conditions such as epilepsy and AIDS.
