4. A Closer Look at Penicillin Allergy History: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Tolerance to Drug Challenge. (Full text)

A Closer Look at Penicillin Allergy History: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Tolerance to Drug Challenge. True allergy to penicillin is rare, despite the high frequency with which it is reported. While most patients reporting penicillin allergy are not prone to anaphylaxis, it is not currently known what percentage of these patients will tolerate dose challenges of penicillin-based antibiotics. This review aims to determine the rate of tolerance in patients reporting penicillin allergy (...) when challenged with penicillin-based antibiotics.We searched MedLine, Embase, and Cochrane Library for publications with English language translations between the years 2000 and 2017. We included randomized controlled trials, quasi-experimental, and observational studies of participants reporting penicillin allergy who received at least one systemic dose of a penicillin in the form of a drug challenge. At least 2 independent reviewers extracted data from included studies and assessed the quality

7. Penicillin Skin Testing, Challenge, and Desensitization in Pregnancy: A Systematic Review. (Abstract)

Penicillin Skin Testing, Challenge, and Desensitization in Pregnancy: A Systematic Review. This study sought to evaluate available evidence of the safety of penicillin skin testing (PST), challenge, and desensitization in pregnancy, with efforts to improve perinatal care for patients with a penicillin allergy history and mitigate the negative sequelae of unverified penicillin allergy labels.A systematic review of studies was conducted using Cochrane Library, Medline, EMBASE, and International (...) criteria. In total there were 231 patients with varying histories of penicillin allergy, the majority requiring treatment for syphilis or group B streptococcal (GBS) disease during pregnancy. Of the 203 participants who underwent PST, 83.7% had negative test results. Allergy-related reactions were rare in PST (1.5%) and challenge (0%), and although these reactions were more common in desensitization (19.7%), most were benign. Among the 231 cases, only one adverse pregnancy outcome was reported (0.4

Cefazolin Versus Anti-Staphylococcal Penicillins for the Treatment of Patients with Methicillin-Susceptible Staphylococcus aureus Infection: A Meta-Analysis with Trial Sequential Analysis. Methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) is a common cause of infection in humans.

Recent studies comparing the two strategies

9. Cross-Reactivity to Cephalosporins and Carbapenems in Penicillin-Allergic Patients: Two Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses. (Abstract)

Cross-Reactivity to Cephalosporins and Carbapenems in Penicillin-Allergic Patients: Two Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses. There is no recent systematic review on the risk of cross-reactivity to cephalosporins and carbapenems in penicillin-allergic patients despite many new studies on the subject. All past reviews have several limitations such as not including any patient with a T-cell-mediated penicillin allergy.To determine the risk of cross-reactivity to cephalosporins and carbapenems (...) in patients with a proven IgE- or T-cell-mediated penicillin allergy. To measure the association between R1 side chain similarity on cephalosporins and penicillins and the risk of cross-reactivity.MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched from January 1980 to March 2019. Studies had to include at least 10 penicillin-allergic subjects whose allergy had been confirmed by a positive skin test (ST) or drug provocation test (DPT) result. Cross-reactivity had to be assessed to at least 1 cephalosporin or carbapenem

13. Evaluation and Management of Penicillin Allergy: A Review. (Abstract)

Evaluation and Management of Penicillin Allergy: A Review. β-Lactam antibiotics are among the safest and most effective antibiotics. Many patients report allergies to these drugs that limit their use, resulting in the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics that increase the risk for antimicrobial resistance and adverse events.Approximately 10% of the US population has reported allergies to the β-lactam agent penicillin, with higher rates reported by older and hospitalized patients. Although many (...) patients report that they are allergic to penicillin, clinically significant IgE-mediated or T lymphocyte-mediated penicillin hypersensitivity is uncommon (<5%). Currently, the rate of IgE-mediated penicillin allergies is decreasing, potentially due to a decreased use of parenteral penicillins, and because severe anaphylactic reactions to oral amoxicillin are rare. IgE-mediated penicillin allergy wanes over time, with 80% of patients becoming tolerant after a decade. Cross-reactivity between penicillin

15. The effect of preoperative penicillin allergy testing on perioperative non-beta-lactam antibiotic use: A systematic review and meta-analysis. (Abstract)

The effect of preoperative penicillin allergy testing on perioperative non-beta-lactam antibiotic use: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Background: The majority of patients for elective surgery and with a history of penicillin allergy are placed on alternative prophylactic antibiotic therapies, which have been associated with the emergence of multidrug-resistant pathogens and increased morbidity and mortality rates. However, self-reporting of penicillin allergy alone may overestimate (...) the prevalence of penicillin allergy in the population. Objective: To assess the effects of preoperative antibiotic allergy testing protocols in reducing the use of non-beta-lactam antibiotics. Methods: We searched medical literature data bases through July of 2018. Two reviewers independently extracted data from published studies and assessed the risk of bias in cohort studies by using the Newcastle-Ottawa Scale. We collected information related to study design, methodology, demographics, interventions
