Abstract

This study evaluated the risk factors for developing allergic reactions to alternative drugs such as acetaminophen and nimesulide in 367 patients intolerant of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) compared to 243 healthy controls. All subjects were given test doses (TD) of acetaminophen and nimesulide, and age, sex, atopy, and history of reactions also to unrelated drugs were compared in those who reacted and those who were tolerant of the challenge. TD was positive in 49 of 367 (14%) NSAID-allergic patients and in one (0.4%) of the controls (P
