1 The summary of various epidemiological factors involved in increasing the risk of sensitization and those offering protection against sensitization. 2 Allergy and Allergen Immunotherapy: New Mechanisms and Strategies GENETICS OF SENSITIZATION It was discovered in the early 20th century that allergies and asthma were heritable. Hopp estimated that around 50% of the risk of developing atopy and allergy was genetic and the other half due to environmental exposures. Atopy is a complex trait and is influenced by several genes with each gene carrying a small weight and different genes being important at different levels in each individual.

It is better to test with high dilutions rather than the standard concentration and then titrate to reach the regular concentration while SPT is performed in patients with severe systemic reactions to food or drugs. 5 SPT PROCEDURE The recommended technique is the modified prick testing introduced by Pepys and involves a prick with a skin-testing lancet through a drop of the antigen placed on the skin. In-Vivo and In-Vitro Diagnosis of Allergy 23 Confirm that the patient is not on any drug that can inhibit skin sensitivity or accentuate systemic reaction before beginning to test.
