BACKGROUND The skin prick test (SPT) is regarded as an important diagnostic measure in the diagnostic work-up of food allergy. [...] Key MethodMETHODS In 385 children (median age 22 months), 735 controlled oral challenges were performed with cow's milk (CM), hen's egg (HE), wheat and soy. Three hundred and thirty-six of 385 (87%) children suffered from atopic dermatitis. SPT was performed in all children.Expand
