Highlights from this Publication

“..this study indicates that the BAT is a valuable tool in helping to decide when an oral challenge can safely be undertaken in the follow-up of IgE-mediated CMA...We therefore believe that the amount of unnecessary, costly and dangerous positive challenges that could be avoided justifies the extra expense of this functional test.”
