The Urticaria Control Test (UCT) is a validated, easy to use tool to determine disease control in patients with chronic urticaria of all subforms (spontaneous and inducible). The UCT is designed as a retrospective instrument and may be evaluated directly, quickly and easily at the time of any chronic urticaria patient presentation.
The UCT was developed by a Charité team of scientist led by Dr. Karsten Weller and Dr. Marcus Maurer. Briefly, after a set of potential UCT items was developed, item evaluation and reduction were performed by means of impact analysis, regression analysis, and by checking for face validity. In addition, the items of the final UCT were tested for their validity and reliability during a validation study.
