J. Kwok and K.M. Kwong Detection of HLA-B*58:01, the susceptible allele for allopurinol-induced hypersensitivity, by loop-mediated isothermal amplification British Journal of Dermatology 168
What’s already known about this topic?
Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) is a rapid test with shorter hands-on time and assay time than routine genotyping assays.
Routine sequence-specific oligonucleotide and sequence-specific priming assays for HLA-B*58:01 screening have high set-up times and are costly to perform.
What does this study add?
This is the first study using LAMP for the detection of HLA-B*58:01-associated allopurinol-induced hypersensitivity.
DNA samples, rather than blood samples, must be used as the starting materials for LAMP.
LAMP is a cost-effective test for potential allopurinol-induced drug hypersensitivity screening.
