Changes in food sensitization with changing allergy practice in Ireland
The CORAL cohort is a cohort of infants born in Ireland during the first SARS-CoV- 2 mandated lockdown between March and May 2020. We hypothesized that infants born during this time would have increased rates of allergy possibly mediated through changes in the infant social and physical environment during the lockdown. In this letter, we outline the unexpectedly low incidence of peanut and egg allergy at 2 years despite higher levels of atopic dermatitis (AD) (25.3% CORAL vs. 15.5% BASELINE p< .0001) and egg sensitization at 12 months.
