Has there been a study correlating RAST score with likelihood of an anaphylatic reaction?

It would be a simple study. All you would need is a list of RAST scores of people only allergic to peanuts, and a list of RAST scores of people who had an anaphylactic reaction who were only allergic to peanuts. Likelihood for any given range (e.g., 0-10, 11-20) could easily be calculated.
