American Mothers Seriously Concerned About Childhood Allergies, Siemens Survey Reveals
Date:7/20/2009

gnostics. "Many parents are not aware that there is a safe, simple and reliable third-generation blood test to aid in the diagnosis of allergies. Siemens is committed to allergy awareness and support for clinicians in providing allergy education for families -- the first step in helping children with allergies lead active lives."

Medical studies indicate that third-generation blood tests for detecting allergies common in children, including peanuts, insect venoms, milk, foods, dust and a host of other allergens,( )may have higher rates of precision, sensitivity and in some instances safety, than other diagnostic options.(4,5) Blood tests pose no risk of triggering a severe reaction in the patient being tested.

The reason third-generation allergen-specific IgE assays offer improved sensitivity and reliability is three-fold:

  • They are quantitative -- able to measure low concentrations of IgE antibodies in a small blood sample.
  • They are automated and accurate -- similar to other blood serum diagnostic tests.
  • Their test antigens are standardized -- enabling reliable and reproducible test results.

Siemens and The Walt Disney Company Form Alliance

Furthering its commitment to raise awareness about childhood allergies, Siemens recently announced a strategic alliance with The Walt Disney Company. The two companies have teamed up to teach children and parents about health issues through Disney storytelling. Mickey and the Giant Kachoo!, a children's book featuring Disney's Mickey Mouse, will be introduced to clinical laboratory and physician communities at this year's American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Meeting from July 19-23 in Chicago.
