0f 5,500 newborn infants whose family histories were screened, 900 were found to have anamnestic risk.
Cord-blood IgE was evaluable in 4,677 of these newborns, of which 394 had levels >=1 IU/mL; 84 infants had both anamnestic risk and elevated cord-blood IgE levels.
Parents of infants with anamnestic risk were informed of their child's risk of atopy.
Additionally, for 391 infants at two of the three participating hospitals, a preventive diet was prescribed that recommended breast feeding for the first 6 months of life, with maternal diet restricted to no more than 200 dL of cow milk per day, no more than one egg per week, and no tomato, fish, shellfish, nuts, or foods allergenic to the mother.
