Testing was carried out for groups of food allergens (cow's milk, eggs, flour, meat I and II, fruit I, II and III, vegetables I and II) and for groups of aeroallergens (grass pollen, weed pollen, tree pollen, house dust, Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, animal hair-fur, feathers, vegetable fibers, fabrics, fungi, bacteria) using dialyzed extracts of allergens in a solution of a mixture of 50% glycerol solution in buffered saline solution (allergens preparations for SPT; Institute of Immunology, Zagreb, Croatia).
The extracts of allergens used were the following: house dust mite group: Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, Dermatophagoides farinae; animal group: cat, dog; mold group: Alternaria, Cladosporium; wild grass pollen group: weed mix, mugwort, lambs quarter, nettle, English plantain; grass pollen group: meadow grass, grass mix (Stallergenes 689-coded mixture of 12 grass pollens), cereal mix (oat, wheat, barley, corn); tree pollens: cypress, olive, ash, pine; and foods: milk, egg, wheat, peanut, hazelnut, and fish.
