Polyethylene Gycol as a Cause of Anaphylaxis

Katharina Wylon, Sabine Dölle, Margitta Worm

Polyethylene glycols (PEGs) or macrogols are polyether compounds and are widely used as additives in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and food.

The awareness regarding the allergenic potential of PEG should be raised and a proper product labelling is crucial to prevent PEG mediated hypersensitivity.
