Prevalence of challenge-proven IgE-mediated food allergy using population-based sampling and predetermined challenge criteria in infants
Background: Several indicators suggest that food allergy in infants is common and possibly increasing. Few studies have used oral food challenge to measure this phenomenon at the population level.
