MedStat members, Professor Peacock and Dr Ayis, contributed to a recently published study titled: Randomized Trial of Introduction of Allergenic Foods in Breast-Fed Infants

The study, recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, evaluated ‘whether the early introduction of allergenic foods in the diet of breast-fed infants would protect against the development of food allergy’. The trial used an intention-to-treat analysis with early introduction of potential allergenic foods at 3 months of age (rather than the UK recommended 6 months). No evidence was found for the ‘efficacy of early introduction of allergenic foods…’. Additional analysis did find evidence that in the ‘per protocol’ group, early introduction of allergenic foods was effective.
