Childhood Allergy and Immunology Research (CAIR)

Infants who have moderate to severe eczema are at highest risk of developing egg allergy. 50% of children with egg allergy go on to develop respiratory (asthma, Hayfever) allergic disease. Recent studies suggest that oral tolerance to “allergy-causing” foods can be achieved through early, regular exposure to these foods.

Our study – Egg allergy prevention study

In this study, we hope to show that early, regular feeding with egg will reduce egg allergy. Participation will include a dietary supplement from 4-8 months, 3 allergy clinic visits at Princess Margaret Hospital and 4 follow-up phone calls.
