PMID:  4085155     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In a prospective study, infants born to atopic parents had a significantly higher prevalence of salivary IgA deficiency at all ages studied than control infants, and the mean non zero IgA level of the potentially atopic infants was significantly lower at 8 and 12 months than of control infants. Of the infants with atopic parents, the prevalence of IgA deficiency was not significantly greater in those who manifested atopic disease during the study period than in those who did not, but the levels were significantly lower at 4 months.
