Changing CMA infants’ gut microbiota
November 23, 2017
The global prevalence of allergy is steadily rising, with around 30-40% of the world’s population now affected by one or more allergic conditions1,2. Cow’s milk protein allergy (CMA) is one of the most common childhood allergies, affecting up to 5% of infants and children.3 Beyond the clinical symptoms, allergy can have a major impact on the quality of life of patients and their families, as well as being an ongoing economic burden on healthcare services.4-7 Nutricia Research is committed to finding new and innovative ways to reduce the allergy burden and help people live longer, healthier lives. Within the allergy field, we focus on how the right nutrition during early life can have an impact on allergy development, allergy management and overall immune health.
“We are at an exciting time in allergy research, pushing the boundaries of what we know about how allergies occur and how we can support healthcare professionals in the dietary management and prevention of allergy. Currently, we are especially excited to see the evidence from research being conducted on the use of synbiotics in allergy.”
