In vitro assays showed considerable variation in the total protein and allergen contents of different latex glove brands. The amount of protein eluting from the gloves did not always correlate with their allergenicity in skin prick tests indicating that total protein measurement is not a sufficient method to monitor the allergenic properties of latex gloves.
