ADHD, Aspergers and autism

Dr Wakefield, autism and the MMR vaccine. New documents have come to light which show that far from making fraudulent claims about the MMR vaccine and autism, Dr Wakefield's 1998 research was only replicating work done by Professor John Walker Smith two years earlier.

Research Reports

Associations of self-reported allergic diseases and musculoskeletal problems in children: A US population-based study. June 2017
This survey, of nearly 1,000 children, reports that children with allergic diseases are more likely to suffer from bone, joint and muscle problems. Risk was found to increase with severity of allergic disease. Prospective studies will be important to help identify any causal role in this association.

Clostridium difficile colonization and/or infection during infancy and the risk of childhood allergic diseases. May 2017
This study reports that infants found to have the microbe Clostridium difficile present in their stool samples were at a higher risk of developing allergic diseases, including food allergies in early childhood.

The prevalence of food allergy and other allergic diseases in early childhood in a population-based study: HealthNuts age 4-year follow-up. April 2017
This population cohort study, based in Australia, sought to provide up-to-date statistics on the prevalence of allergies in early childhood. Amongst other findings, they reveal that 40-50% of this sample, of 5276 children, experienced symptoms of an allergic disease in the first 4 years of their life.

Growth of Children with Food Allergy March 2017
This review study finds that children with food allergies have stunted growth. This is found even when their nutritional needs are being met and when they are under the care of a dietician. This suggests further research is important to enable exploration of the reasons for growth faltering in children with food allergies.

Review suggests that the immunoregulatory and anti-inflammatory properties of allergenic foods can provoke oral tolerance if introduced early to infants' diets. Feb 2017
More research to suggest that feeding infants allergenic foods early in life may be linked to a better ability to tolerate these foods.

Introducing Allergenic Food into Infants' Diets: Systematic Review.
November 2016
This evidence-based review explores the association between timing of introduction of potentially allergenic foods to infants and development of food allergies. ‘Results found that delayed introduction of solid foods in general and allergenic foods in particular was not associated with decreased risk for allergic diseases among high and low-risk infants. Later introduction was associated with increased risk for allergy development.’ The authors make some interesting practical suggestions based on their findingsā€¦ ‘For infants at low risk for development of food allergies, providers should advise caregivers to introduce potentially allergenic foods with other solid foods between 4 and 6 months of age when children show an interest in eating solids. Caregivers of infants at high risk for development of food allergies are recommended to introduce peanuts between the ages of 4 and 6 months and work with providers to create an individualized plan for introduction of other allergenic foods.’

Pre- and probiotics for allergy prevention: time to revisit recommendations?
October 2016
‘Recent guidelines from the World Allergy Organization recommend the use of probiotics for the primary prevention of eczema in pregnant and breastfeeding mothers of infants at high risk for developing allergy and in high risk infants.’ Probiotics are a source of beneficial bacteria that are introduced into the gut through oral consumption. This article discusses some of the issues around our current understanding of the research informing this advice.

The role of food allergy in infant colic is still unclear. However, where there is a suspicion of food allergy, a short trial with an extensively hydrolyzed cow's proteins formula or, if breast fed, with maternal elimination diet may be considered a reasonable option. March 2015

Babies who are fed only breast milk have microbial communities that seem more ready for the introduction of solid foods. February 2015

Cow's milk formula is of supplemented with prebiotic short-chain galacto-oligosaccharide. However, these can cause alelrgic reactions in atopic children who are not cow's milk intolerant. December 2012

Over 700 bacteria identified in breast milk, and, if these prove to be important for the development of the immune system, their addition to infant formula could potentially decrease the risk of food allergies. December 2012

While the more mature mucosal lining of the intestines of older children are able to protect them from free fatty acids created during the digestion of infant formula, those of premature infants are not and it is thought that these fatty acids damage cell membranes leading to necrotizing enterocolitis, the leading cause of death from gastrointestinal disease in premature infants.
