Version 2.77


The leukocyte histamine release test (LHR, LHRT) measures the amount of histamine released in-vitro in the presence of an allergen. Allergen extracts in varying concentrations are added to isolated leukocytes from peripheral blood. If the patient is hypersensitive to the specific antigen, the leukocytes will release the histamine in-vitro. The amount of histamine released will depend on the sensibility to the allergen.
