What will this session cover?

Food allergy effects around 5-6% of children and this session will explore how the management of food allergy is changing. There have been key developments in our understanding of food allergy prevention.  There is also a move towards a more proactive way of approaching common food allergens, considering tolerance induction rather than just passive avoidance. There is also an emerging role for probiotics, resulting from our improved understanding of the microbiome and its effect on allergic outcomes. This is already translating into changes in the clinic in terms of choice of hypoallergenic formula for milk allergic infants. The emerging role of food desensitisation will also be discussed.

Learning outcomes

  • Understanding of the science behind changes in allergy prevention guidelines
  • Understanding of the changes to hypoallergenic formula and their possible impact
  • Awareness of the emerging role of food desensitisation
