Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
Inclusion Criteria:- Age ≥18 years - Patient presenting, during a general anesthesia, clinical signs compatible with an PAH sufficiently severe for the anesthetist to request biological exploration using the "anaphylaxis kit" present in all operating theaters
Exclusion Criteria:- Lack of signed informed consent - Patient not affiliated to social security
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

|Perioperative Complication, Hypersensitivity|
Background Perioperative Acute Hypersensitivity (PAH) is a systemic reaction that occurs rapidly following injection of a drug during anesthesia. Symptoms may include erythema, angioedema, bronchoconstriction, vasodilation, and increased capillary permeability leading to severe hypotension or even cardiac arrest. The rate of occurrence is estimated between 1/6,000 and 1/20,000 anesthesia according to literature. Despite adequate management, mortality is estimated between 3 and 9%. The main substances responsible for these reactions are the neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBA) and beta-lactams, more rarely the gelatin-based filling solutions, contrast agents, antiseptics or other hypnotic or analgesic drugs. The main mechanism is an immune response of immediate systemic hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis. Anaphylactic reactions are classically described as IgE-dependent and triggered by the injection of allergen which by bridging specific IgE present on the surface of mast cells, induces a massive release of histamine responsible for the observed symptoms. The diagnosis of this mechanism (IgE endotype) requires the determination of associated circulating mediators (histamine and mast cell tryptase) as well as skin tests performed in an allergology consultation. However, our previous work on patients with NMBA-triggered PAH (NASA study, ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT01637220) demonstrated that classical markers of IgE endotype are present in only 42% of patients. This finding has three consequences:
- - a diagnostic inaccuracy with deleterious consequences for the patient, - the existence of undocumented endotypes explaining the observed clinical manifestations, - a lack of formal identification of the culprit drug, with uncertainty about the eviction recommendations leading to consequences for the safety of the patient.
- - to assess links between the different endotypes identified and the clinical and biological parameters of the PAH reaction, in particular the severity and the responsible drug - Constitute a biobank (serum, plasma, DNA) to be able to continue the exploration of the different endotypes Study design The investigators will include all patients >18 years old presenting, during a general anesthesia, symptoms compatible with a PAH severe enough to for the anesthetist to request biological exploration using the "anaphylaxis kit" (tryptase, histamine and specific IgE measurement).
