In Infants with Egg or Milk Allergy, Can Future Peanut Allergy Be Predicted? – 1
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Early results in a study show that infants who are already allergic to milk and or egg are at high risk for developing a peanut allergy. Dr. Marshall Plaut with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases says the study looked at how allergies develop.
Plaut: We started out with infants who were at high risk of developing peanut allergy in hopes that we would be able to look at certain measures that would correlate those who do develop peanut allergy and those who don't develop peanut allergy as well as those who start out with milk allergy and lose it.
