Interpretive Data:Please see report for interpretive data.

Cows milk (f2) - High levels of cows milk IgE may predict the likelihood of sensitivity, but may not be solely predictive of reactions to baked milk or allergy duration
COWS MILK COMPONENTS:
Alpha-lactalbumin (f76) - Susceptible to heat denaturation; HIGH RISK of reaction to fresh milk; LOW RISK of reaction to baked milk; patient likely to outgrow milk allergy
Beta-lactoglobulin (f77) - Susceptible to heat denaturation; HIGH RISK of reaction to fresh milk; LOW RISK of reaction to baked milk; patient likely to outgrow milk allergy
Casein (f78) - Resistant to heat denaturation; HIGH RISK of reaction to all forms of milk; patient unlikely to outgrow milk allergy with high levels of specific IgE to casein
Components:
  • 80316 - ALPHA-LACTALBUMIN
  • 80317 - BETA-LACTOGLOBULIN
  • 80055 - CASEIN
