Infant Allergy StudyResearch Question:
How does the development of the infant immune system differ in populations with allergic
diseases as compared to those without allergic diseases?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: Strong Memorial Hospital
The purpose of this study is to provide new knowledge about the development of infant
immunity, and set the groundwork for future studies in the prevention of allergic
diseases in childhood. We can study the difference between populations with allergic
diseases and those without allergic diseases by comparing breast milk, saliva, blood,
skin swab, nasal swab, urine, and stool samples.
You need to be 18 years or older, healthy, and pregnant.
If you have allergies, such as hay fever, asthma, eczema, or food allergies in the
family (you, your partner, or another child), then you may qualify for this study.
