List of Patch-Test Allergens
Table 3 of contact allergens [1–13] provides basic chemical information and literature reference numbers to the Chemical Abstract Service and The Merck Index for a majority of commercially available allergens and for some allergens not available through a commercial source. An extensive list of synonyms is also given as an aid in identifying allergens through names stated on labels of products. For some allergens, colour index (C.I.) numbers are also given. The table is also designed to give information about general occurrence and areas of exposure for the allergens. To help the reader relate the allergen to the clinical picture as well as to select relevant allergens for patch testing, valuable information is given about airborne contact dermatitis, contact urticaria, cross reactions, lichen planus, pho-toallergic and phototoxic reactions, persistent light reactions, pigmentation, depigmentation and discoloration of the skin. INCI names (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) are also given for relevant allergens at the end of the paragraph.
