[Literature Library] A birth cohort study on HMOs and allergy risk
This observational birth cohort study investigated the association between human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) and common allergic outcomes in a cohort of high-allergy risk babies up to 18 years of age. It was found that certain HMO profiles were indeed associated with varying risk level of allergic disease outcomes such as sensitization, wheeze, asthma and eczema.
