ABSTRACT
The article presents comments on tuberculin reactivity and the prevalence of atopy and its subsequent reply. Referring to an article by E. Omenaas and colleagues , T.J. Steenhus and colleagues comments that the authors found no relationship between a positive tuberculin reaction and atopy, as assessed by the IgE measurements in their retrospective study of 20-44 year old adults who were BCG vaccinated at the age of 14. E. Omenaas and colleagues states that Steenhus and colleagues indicate that modulation of the immune response by BCG vaccination at the age of 14 does not result in a reduction of atopy in adults.
