Professor du Toit has a special interest in drug allergies such as antibiotics, anaesthetic agents, vaccines... and chronic urticaria (hives). 

Professor du Toit is active on numerous clinical trials aimed at the prevention and treatment of food allergies.

Allergy Tests

There are three scientifically validated allergy tests for the investigation of IgE-mediated food allergy i) Skin Prick Test (SPT) ii) Specific-IgE antibody testing (previously called RAST testing, now called Immuno-Cap Testing) and iii) Oral Food/Drug Challenge Tests.

If these tests result in an equivocal outcome, we will undertake oral challenge tests (which are the gold standard diagnostic test). OFC's are undertaken in clinic (if low risk) or as a day case (if the risk of a severe reaction is higher).

Treatments

Immunotherapy is the practice of administering gradually increasing doses of an allergen extract in order to reduce the symptoms of that allergen causes.  We cover both aeroallergens and increasingly food allergens in these treatment regimens.
