Antithymocyte globulin is obtained from horse serum, and, prior to administration, the patient should be tested for allergy to horse serum. The patient will not need to be assessed for allergy to ragweed. The patient will not be assessed for an allergy to dust mites. The patient will not be assessed for tuberculosis.
