Title The ALCATŪ Test
Description A new cellular test for food sensitivity
Creation Date 02 May 2003
Doc type Article
Document Abstract:
The difficulty of diagnosing food sensitivity (by any laboratory test) which is not IgE mediated is well known. The ALCAT Test was developed to fulfill this lack and is based on measuring the change in volume and count of white blood cells between control and post incubated whole blood specimens with food extract. There are three blocks of work presented in this paper which correlates the predicted result of the ALCAT Test with food challenge and elimination diets.
