      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. Due to relative lack of evidence based information to guide us, a pragmatic approach is our only option.

      2. Re-administration of a drug to a patient who had had a previous reaction to the same drug or a similar drug requires a careful history taking and risk benefit analysis.

      3. Stratification of risk category can guide protocols for re-administration.
