Study finds asthma and food allergies predictable at age one

posted in: Publication, Research update | 0

Research published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (JACI) highlights new findings from the CHILD Study that will help doctors better predict which children will develop asthma and allergies.

Analyzing data from more than 2,300 children participating in CHILD, the research found that children at one year old who have eczema or atopic dermatitis and who are sensitized to an allergen, are seven times more likely than other infants to develop asthma, and significantly more likely to have a food allergy by age three.

The paper was highlighted in the December 2017 issue of JACI as an “Editor’s Choice” feature.
