High impact information on Latex Hypersensitivity


Chemical compound and disease context of Latex Hypersensitivity


Gene context of Latex Hypersensitivity

  • Contact allergy in children. Part I: Rubber allergy [13].
  • Rubber mixes, especially thiuram and PPD mix appeared to be better screening agents than any individual chemical to detect rubber allergy [14].
  • The new M40/42 series protective mask has a different composition, and should be tried as an alternative to the M17 mask in service members with black rubber allergies [15].
