A panel of representative haptens, including metals and cements, to assess the incidence of delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) reaction in a consecutive series of patients undergoing total hip replacement (THR) was analyzed. The feasibility and the clinical relevance of the relatively simple diagnostic approach to predict host reactions to the implants were evaluated. A consecutive series of 187 individuals was enrolled in the study. No significant differences were found when the reactivity against each hapten was considered.
