Key highlights of the review paper:


Prevention:

  • Partial hydrolysates with clinical proof of efficacy can be recommended for allergy prevention in infants at risk of allergy
  • There are debates over the pros and cons to whether consider partially hydrolyzed formula (pHF) for all non-exclusively breastfed infants, provided that facts that most allergy prevention studies are conducted in infants at risk of allergy
     

Diagnosis:

  • The Cow Milk Symptom Score (CoMiSSTM) is an awareness tool to facilitate HCPs to better identify allergic symptoms related to the ingestion of cow’s milk
     

Treatment:

  • Extensively hydrolyzed formula remains the first option for the treatment of cow’s milk allergy, while amino acid based formula is reserved for severe cases due to its higher cost
  • Rice hydrolysates and soy infant formula may be considered if the infant does not have cross-allergic reaction to soy
