Effectiveness of using an extensively hydrolyzed casein formula supplemented with Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG compared with an extensively hydrolysed whey formula in managing cow's milk protein allergic infants.

This study retrospectively analyzed the case records of 940 formula-fed cow's milk allergic infants in the UK extracted from The Health Improvement Network database. Results: At 24 months after starting a formula, 77% of infants fed an extensively hydrolyzed casein formula supplemented with Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (eHCF LGG; n = 470) were estimated to have been successfully managed compared with 63% of matched infants who were fed an extensively hydrolyzed whey formula (eHWF; n = 470; p

In this study we observed an association between allergic disease and communication skills development as assessed by the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) communication score, as a proxy for ASD, among children who participated in the Vitamin D Antenatal Asthma Reduction Trial (VDAART). In particular, we observed significant associations between both a diagnosis of eczema at age 3 years (OR=1.87; confidence interval [CI]: 0.97-3.47; p=0.054) and a diagnosis of food allergy at age 6 years (OR=3.61; 95% CI: 1.18-9.85; p=0.015) with ASQ communication score. Plasma metabolomics analyses suggest that dysregulated tryptophan ...

Conclusions: We found strong effects of parental history of allergy, eczema or asthma on the presence of physician-diagnosed inhalant allergy in children at age 10  years. Eczema ever at age 10 years was a strong risk factor for the development of physician-diagnosed inhalant and food allergy.What is Known:• The prevalence of allergic diseases in children has markedly increased.• Early-life influences are critically important in the development of allergic diseases.What is New:• Maternal and paternal history of allergy, eczema or asthma is associated with increased risks of physician-diagnosed inha...

This report describes the diagnoses, occupations and exposure factors that occur most frequently in the youngest patient group. This will reflect exposures in modern working life in particular, and thus produce important knowledge with regard to targeted prevention efforts. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We have undertaken a descriptive analysis of 910 examinations of patients in the age group 20-29 years, performed in occupational medicine departments in Norway during the period 2010-17. RESULTS: Examinations of patients aged 20-29 years accounted for 914 (8 %) of a total of 11 969 recorded patient examinations. We e...

Abstract Variants in the FADS gene cluster modify the activity of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) desaturation and the lipid composition in human blood and tissue. FADS variants have been associated with plasma lipid concentrations, risk of cardiovascular diseases, overweight, eczema, pregnancy outcomes, and cognitive function. Studies on variations in the FADS genecluster provided some of the first examples for marked gene-diet interactions in modulating complex phenotypes, such as eczema, asthma, and cognition. Genotype distribution differs markedly among ethnicities, apparently reflecting an evolutionary adva...

ConclusionAllergic eczema/asthma in early life, being born during the autumn/winter, having multiple allergic symptoms and two allergic parents were all strong predictors for having allergic diseases at 5 and 10 years of age. However, the allergic march seems to be independent of heredity, as IgE ‐mediated allergies follow the same trajectories in children with and without allergic heredity.
