Striving for evidence-based management of food allergies

Peter Arkwright, Jennifer Koplin

    Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


    This Issue of the Journal highlights several advances in Food Allergy diagnosis and management. It comes seven years after Du Toit et al’s seminal randomized, double-blinded, clinical trial Learning Early About Peanut (LEAP) that has led to a revolution in our thinking about food allergy prevention.1 The LEAP study clearly demonstrated that at least in high-risk infants and young children with eczema and egg allergy, food avoidance increases the prevalence of peanut allergy. The aim of this theme editorial is to highlight key take home messages and ongoing challenges presented in this Issue’s Rostrum and Review articles that clinicians currently face regarding the diagnosis and management of patients with suspected food allergies.
