    Patch Testing with a New Composition of Mercapto Mix: A Multi­centre Study by the Swedish Contact Dermatitis Research Group
    Malin Engfeldt, Marléne Isaksson, Bo Glas, Lina Hagvall, Anna Löfnertz Petersson, Mihály Matura, Berndt Stenberg, Cecilia Svedman, Magnus Bruze
    A new mercaptomix (3.5%), containing 2-mercaptobenzothiazole (MBT) 2.0% instead of 0.5%, has been tested in over 3000 dermatitis patients in 5 Swedish dermatology departments simultaneously with MBT 2.0% and mercaptomix 2.0%. Results showed that mercaptomix 3.5% detected all positive patients and more patch-test positive patients than the other two substances did. The Swedish Contact Dermatitis Research Group will recommend that mercaptomix 3.5% replaces MBT 2.0% and mercaptomix 2.0% in the Swedish baseline series from 2020.
