The importance of allergy prevention - The GINI study 20-years follow-up

Speakers: Andrea Von Berg

Summary

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.
