Sample text

I think this is true for a lot of infants with gastrointestinal symptoms related to cow’s milk. It just shows that cow’s milk is involved, it does not at all show that there is an immunological mechanism involved in these children. Up to now in most studies, they have all been put together, and that is certainly one of the important weaknesses of these studies. During a certain period there was some relaxation in the definition that if you had a positive challenge it was proof of allergic disease, but I don’t think that is true.

Karger AG, Basel, © 2004. Changing Definitions of Allergy Carsten Bindslev-Jensen Allergicentret, Odense Universitetshospital, Odense, Denmark In the 1920’s Coca and Cooke [1] introduced the term ‘atopy’ to designate some phenomena of hypersensitivity in man. They considered that heredity, association with immediate-type skin reactions, diseases such as hay fever and asthma, and the fact that the responses were limited to a small group of patients were prominent features. The classical nomenclature for allergic reactions was introduced by Gell and Coombs [2] and in the 1970s Pepys [3] defined the term ‘atopic allergy’ as classical IgE-mediated reactions to inhalant allergens.

29 Changing Definitions of Allergy In food hypersensitivity the role of nonallergic food hypersensitivity has been much overestimated and has attracted much attention by the public. Food allergy on the other hand is prevalent both in infants in whom sensitization to milk, egg and peanut/nuts predominates and in adults in whom cross-reactive IgE antibodies in pollen rhinitics elicit oral itching upon intake of fresh fruit and vegetables. Cross-reactions constitute a major problem in the diagnosis of food allergy, since many cross-reactive antibodies give rise to a significant response when measured in serum but do not elicit a clinical response when the incriminated food is ingested.
