Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Prevention of food allergies by maternal and infant feeding practices serves as a simple, inexpensive approach to address the growing number of subjects with food allergies in comparison with any emerging interventional therapies for existing food allergies, such as oral immunotherapy. This article provides a careful evaluation of the rationale and existing data on the effect of timing of the introduction of food allergens (during pregnancy, lactation, and early childhood) on the development of specific food allergies.
