Comparison of multiple-antigen simultaneous test and CAP systems for diagnosis of nasal allergy. Ogino S1, Kawashima K, Nibu M, Irifune M.
The multiple-antigen simultaneous test (MAST) is a simple system that uses no radioactive agents and allows simultaneous examination of multiple antigens. CAP is a quick new, in vitro system that is more sensitive than the radio-allergosorbent test (RAST). To evaluate their clinical efficacies, we examined the correlation between the MAST and CAP systems. Serum samples were collected from 33 patients with nasal allergies, 13 males and 20 females, mean age 31.
Radioallergosorbent tests (RAST) and multiple antigen simultaneous tests (MAST) are benefits of Texas Medicaid. RAST testing is a radioimmunoassay of the blood serum used to detect specific allergens. MAST is an RAST type test using an enzyme rather than a radioactive marker. RAST/MAST testing is usually performed by an independent lab; however, there are physicians who have the capability of performing these tests in their offices.
