    • National Antibiotic Allergy Network (NAAN)

      The National Antibiotic Allergy Network (NAAN) is a collaborative group of mixed discipline clinicians and policy makers related to antibiotic allergy.

      The NAAN provides a repository of consumer and clinician antibiotic allergy protocols, policies and procedures, that can be disseminated and implemented nationally, in particular to aid sites with limited resources or experience with antibiotic allergy.  

      Visit the NAAN website for further information.

    • Australasian Registry for Severe Cutaneous Adverse Reactions (AUS-SCAR)

    • Predictors, Immunopathogenesis and Prescribing in Antibiotic allergy (PIPA)

      A multicentre prospective cohort study of antibiotic allergy. The study commenced in 2015 at Austin Health, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Alfred Health examining the impacts of antibiotic allergy testing on prescribing. Further, the study has ongoing recruitment of patients with severe delayed antibiotic hypersensitivities to collect blood for the development of novel diagnostics (IFN-y release Enzyme Linked ImmunoSpot Assay), immune profiling and pharmacogenomic assessment.
