Abstract

Allergic conditions continue to increase steeply. The last two decades have seen many prevention trials, studying the effect of dietary and environmental interventions. These trials have yielded invaluable information about the atopic march and also highlighted the need for a clear and commonly used nomenclature as well as a need for better outcome measures. This review discusses primary and secondary prevention studies and their results.
