Lancet 2002;360:901–907. 24 Clinical Overview: The Changing Pattern of Allergic Diseases 6 Isolauri E, Tahvanainen A, Peltola T, Arvola T: Breast-feeding of allergic infants. J Pediatr 1999;134:27–32. 7 Chandra RK: Five-year follow-up of high-risk infants with family history of allergy who were exclusively breast-fed or fed partial whey hydrolysate, soy, and conventional cow’s milk formulas.

Dr. Vandenplas: That was suggested by the studies that I mentioned. What I tried to stress, especially in very young infants, is that it is very difficult to speak about allergy if you don’t have proof of an allergic mechanism being involved. I again use the example of changing the formula for an infant. So many things change when a regular formula is substituted by hydrolysates and the symptoms disappear. But as soon as you challenge by changing back to the regular formula, the symptoms reappear, and that is now the definition of proof of allergic disease.

These ranged from anaphylaxis and urticaria occurring within minutes of challenge, to distress, vomiting and diarrhea within hours, and exacerbations of AD as well as gastrointestinal or respiratory symptoms occurring after 24 h of ingesting cow’s milk. Analysis of these data identified 3 clinical groups with different immunological correlates (fig. 1). The first group, the immediate reactors, developed acute skin rashes, including peri-oral erythema, facial angioedema, urticaria and pruritus at eczema sites, with or without signs of anaphylaxis.
