Abstract Background: Respiratory symptoms of natural rubber latex (NRL) allergy in health care workers (HCWs) have been reported in rooms with a detectable allergen load. Preventive measures have been proposed to reduce the risk of NRL sensitization. Objectives: Eliminating powdered NRL gloves from the workplace and giving NRL-free material to sensitized workers has been among proposed preventive measures. To appraise the success of such procedures among HCWs, a prospective study was carried out...

Abstract Background: Allergy to latex-containing articles is becoming more and more important because it can result in unexpected life-threatening anaphylactic reactions in sensitized individuals. Methods: A protein of 58 kd with an isoelectric point of 8.45 was purified from raw latex and from latex gloves and identified as the major allergen, completely blocking specific IgE antibodies in the serum of latex-sensitized subjects. The allergen is a noncovalent homotetramer molecule, in which the ...
