Scientists have established causes of allergic reactions in Moscow children
Scientists conducted an analysis of immunoglobulins — proteins, which react to allergens — in 513 children of different ages and found that there are different reactions to allergens in different age groups. The youngest children, up to three years old, are more likely to have allergic reactions to egg white and cow’s milk, while older children, of 13−17 years old, more often react to plant pollen.
Scientists hope that their work will help determine the causes of an allergic reaction in a particular child more effectively. This, in turn, will allow to choose the right treatment more quickly.
