OBJECTIVE We characterised the risk of challenge-proven food allergy among infants with eczema in the general population. METHODS One-year-old infants (n =(More)
BACKGROUND Sensitization to food allergens indicates the production of food-specific IgE; however, sensitization is not a definite indicator of allergic reaction upon ingestion (N Engl J Med, 344, 2001, 30: J Allergy Clin Immunol, 120, 2007, 491).

BACKGROUND Socio-demographic predictors for the development of clinically observed, infantile eczema have not been formally examined in a large population-based study. Few studies of eczema risk factors have included current, objective eczema outcomes as well as parent-reported history. OBJECTIVES We aimed to measure the population prevalence of infantile(More)
With the health monitoring of the Swiss migrant population, a database was created on migrants' health state, their health behaviour and utilization of health services. Thanks to this database, it is now possible to draw representative conclusions on the health status of migrants compared to the indigenous population. Based on the Swiss Health Survey, a(More)
BACKGROUND Asian infants born in Australia are three times more likely to develop nut allergy than non-Asian infants, and rates of challenge-proven food allergy in infants have been found to be unexpectedly high in metropolitan Melbourne. To further investigate the risk factors for nut allergy, we assessed the whole-of-state prevalence distribution of(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this case report was to describe an innovative model for transforming physical therapist students into clinical instructors with the use of a pro bono clinic. This model may assist other academic programs in creating effective approaches to transition entry-level students into future quality clinical instructors. PARTICIPANTS(More)
