Food & Milk Allergies

Food and milk allergies and immune system development courses, infographics, and videos.

The Infant's Microbiome "Social Network"

This continuing education course discusses the microbiome in early life immune development and protection from allergic disorders, the potential impact of COVID-19 on its development, and the dietary factors that support the microbiome's interactions with the immune system.

The Role of 2'-FL HMO in Inflammation and the Possible Role in Food Allergy

In this course, identify research on how 2′-FL HMO helps narrow differences between formula and breast milk; review clinical studies supporting HMOs in immune support; and discuss why 2′-FL HMO may be relevant for the dietary management of infants with food allergy.

 

A Guide to Your Child’s Cow’s Milk Allergy (CMA)

An infographic reference guide to rapidly evaluate and help manage CMA that can be given to a child’s caregiver.

Allergy Summit Video Series

These online modules bring together scientific experts from around the world to share their knowledge and experience in the nutritional management of food allergies. There are five episodes in this series.

Immune Dysregulation in Allergy 

A video featuring professor Christine Loscher as she discusses normal immune development in infants; reviews the dysregulation in the immune system that results in allergic responses; describes how we can manipulate the immune system to overcome this dysregulation; and explains the differences between breastfed and bottle-fed infants.

Diagnosis and Appropriate Identification of Food Allergy

In this video, Carina Venter reviews the different presentations of cow’s milk allergy (CMA); discusses diagnostic tests for CMA; reviews the importance of the clinical history for diagnosis of CMA; and describes healthcare professional tools for managing CMA.

Allergies, Immunology, and Human Milk; Exploring Maternal and Infant Factors

This course describes normal immune development and differences between breastfed and bottle-fed infants; it discusses the dysregulation in the immune system that results in allergic responses; defines the role of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) in breast milk; and evaluates the current state of evidence for the role of HMOs in diseases and disorders. Originally presented as a live webinar on June 3, 2020.

A Review of the Immune Benefits of 2'-Fucosyllactose Human Milk Oligosaccharide and Preclinical Evidence of Its Effects on Food Allergy

This course reviews clinical studies supporting the immune benefits of 2'-fucosyllactose human milk oligosaccharide (2'-FL HMO); discusses preclinical evidence of 2'-FL HMO effects on food allergy and potential mechanisms of action; and describes the possible role of 2'-FL HMO in enhancing oral tolerance. Originally presented as a live webinar on June 3, 2020.

Clinical Presentations of Cow's Milk Allergy in Infants and Children

This course defines cow’s milk allergy (CMA); discusses its clinical features; reviews dietary management; and review case study presentations.
