Initial Medical Examination

A first consultation at our study centre is a prerequisite to take part in a study.

General

At the first consultation (approx. 30 min duration) we start with an extensive anamnesis, in which the medical history is surveyed. This is followed by an allergy test, which consists of a prick-test (skin test) and a blood sample (4ml). For the prick-test different allergens are drizzled on the skin on the inner of the arm, the skin is then scratched gently, and the reaction observed. An allergic reaction manifests itself in itchiness, reddening and the forming of wheals.

An ECG is also performed as well as a lung functioning test. You are also informed on the procedure of our studies and we answer any questions you may have. This consultation takes approximately half an hour.

Here are the appointments for the first consultation.
