When trying to determine whether a given disease is allergic or nonallergic, the quality of the tests applied to the patient should also be taken into consideration. Normally, based on the physician’s knowledge and experience, only a limited number of allergens are tested, and one must always bear in mind whether sensitization to other more exotic allergens or perhaps those found in the occupational field might be of importance. Furthermore, neither skin-prick testing nor measurement of specific IgE are perfect in the way of having a 100% sensitivity so false-negative test outcomes may result in misclassification of a given patient.
Therefore this is a situation in which symptoms develop and later disappear, whereas in your notion of the ‘allergic march’ these non-IgE-mediated and non-IgA developmentally associated symptoms seem to lead to a march of IgE-mediated symptoms for the rest of childhood. Is that what you are saying? Dr. Vandenplas: That was suggested by the studies that I mentioned. What I tried to stress, especially in very young infants, is that it is very difficult to speak about allergy if you don’t have proof of an allergic mechanism being involved.
In the MACS birth cohort of 620 children with a positive family history of atopy, we prospectively investigated the association between the level of sensitization to common food allergens (cow’s milk, egg, peanut) and the presence of AD . In addition, we compared the frequency of IgE food allergy and AD in the MACS children with AD (MACS ADϩ), without AD (MACS ADϪ) and in a group of consecutively referred infants of similar age 41 Clinical Profile of Food Allergy in Infancy Table 5.
