The importance of allergy prevention - The GINI study 20-years follow-up
Prevalence of allergic diseases have been increasing and by 2025 half of the population will be affected. And the problem is that children are the most affected: more than 30% of children in Europe suffer from an allergy. Allergic diseases are a major public health condition, with no cure, so strategies for primary preventions are very important. The German Infant Nutritional Intervention study - GINI study is by far the largest study in the field of allergy prevention with hydrolysates and the study with the longest follow-up already done. This interviews discusses the GINI study and the latest results from 20 years follow-up.
