Abstract : Studied is the diagnostic value of the leukocyte agglomeration reaction in the acute period of allergic effects resulting from antibiotics in 300 patients. The test proved to be positive for an antibiotic from which 243 patients of those treated developed a positive allergic reaction while 57 patients developed a negative reaction. Control studies were performed in two control groups. The results of the leukocyte agglomeration reaction were tested in a clinic on 80 patients with serious allergic anamnesis. The results of the studies indicate that the leukocyte agglomeration reaction is a highly sensitive immunological indicator of hypersensitivity to antibiotics.
