Immediate hypersensitivity reactions to foods: blinded food challenges in children with atopic dermatitis

, : Immediate hypersensitivity reactions to foods: blinded food challenges in children with atopic dermatitis. Annals of Allergy 57(3): 209-212

Diet manipulation and elimination at home are generally inadequate diagnostic methods in patients with atopic dermatitis; environmental variables and parent bias are uncontrolled and compliance with specified diets at home is often inadequate. The double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge provides a scientifically acceptable means of diagnosing adverse food reactions and should be considered standard for clinical investigations.

Understanding the demography of species over recent history (e.g. <100 years) is critical in studies of ecology and evolution, but records of population history are rarely available. Surveying genetic variation is a potential alternative to ce...
