- ACRONYMPATCH
- hypothesisIt is expected that feeding a new hypoallergenic formula will result in a lower occurrence of AEDS (Atopic Eczema Dermatitis Syndrome) compared to giving a standard formula in infants with a high risk of developing atopic disease.

Extension: To investigate the efficacy of a partially hydrolysed whey protein infant formula in high-risk infants on the prevalence of allergic manifestations (atopic dermatitis, food allergy, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, allergic urticaria and allergic asthma) between 2-3 years and 7 years of life compared to standard infant formula.

- Target number of participants1200
- InterventionsNutritional intervention starting between the age of 0 to 28 days after birth with formula feeding until the age of 26 weeks in a double-blind, randomised, parallel manner. The study will also include a group of exclusively breastfed infants.

Extension:
Cumulative incidence of allergic manifestations (atopic dermatitis, food allergy, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, allergic urticaria and allergic asthma) based on physician’s diagnosis.
- Secondary outcomeMain study:
1. Severity and course of AEDS;
2. Gastro- intestinal tract characteristics;
3. Faecal microbiota;
4. Immunological blood parameters.

Extension:
1. Period prevalence of allergic manifestations;
2. Severity of allergic manifestation;
3. Lung function
4. Markers of intestinal health;
5. Blood samples for immunological parameters.

- Brief summaryThis double blind placebo controlled trial has been designed to compare feeding a newly developed hypoallergenic formula with feeding a standard formula during the period of age 0-1 months until 6 months to babies with an increased risk to develop allergy. It is expected that the new hypoallergenic formula will result in a lower occurrence of eczema until the age of 12 months and 18 months compared to giving standard formula. Results will also be compared to an exclusively breastfed group.

Extension:
The prevalence of allergic diseases in childhood strongly increased in the Western world over the past 20-30 years. A cumulative prevalence of 25-30% has been reported, with high incidences of both atopic dermatitis and asthma. Atopic dermatitis is mainly seen in infancy, whereas asthma develops later in childhood. However, sensitisation in early years appears to be associated with increased sensitivity in later childhood. The PATCH-study was initiated to investigate the clinical efficacy of a novel infant formula intended for the exclusive nutrition of high atopy risk infants that cannot be breastfed for various reasons.
Evidence is accumulating that nutritional influences in early life have long-term consequences for health and well-being in later life. Therefore this follow-up study will investigate the effect of early nutrition in the first 6 months of life on the development of allergic manifestations up to 7 years of age.
This study involves the follow-up of subjects who participated in and completed the PATCH study, without any nutritional intervention. In total 7 visits will take place and in between 11 phone calls.
