Abstract

Information on the natural history of peanut-induced allergic sensitization (PAS) and clinical peanut allergy (PA) remains limited. Most previous studies selected children who were given a diagnosis of PA, which does not provide the population perspective and probably ignores those with low levels of sensitization.1,2 There are no population-based studies on the natural history of PAS or PA. To provide a population perspective, we used the Isle of Wight birth cohort (n = 1456) and determined the natural history of PAS and PA, focusing on incidence, persistence, and remission.
