Tick-induced allergies: mammalian meat allergy and tick anaphylaxisDescription
This review includes individual journals not accessible via PubMed — due to their earlier date of publication — and a PubMed search for original and review articles published between 1940 and October 2017.
In addition, specialist societies’ publications and guidelines were examined to formulate an evidence-based review of the spectrum of tick-induced allergies, their discovery, distribution, clinical features, management and prevention, and mechanisms of development.
