Food Allergy in Infancy and Childhood

Since the beginning of the century when HAMBURGER, SCHLOSS MANN, and MORO first described food allergy in infants being fed with cow's milk, this topic has been the subject of very con troversial discussions among pediatricians. The dispute is illus trated by markedly fluctuating incidence figures, ranging from denial of the disease to incidence rates up to one in ten infants. The explanation for the differing incidence figures lies in the lack of a single laboratory test which is simple as well as applicable and reliable for all clinical and immunological reactions. Even though the classic allergic hypersensitivity reactions mediated by specific IgE antibodies are relatively clearly defined, there still exist other more complex immune responses which are more dif ficult to recognize. In the fall of 1987 internationally renowned experts from var ious fields met to define and discuss the fundamentals, organic manifestations, and the current status of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of food allergy in childhood. The results have been collected in the volume in hand, in hopes that it will encourage more public involvement in the discussion of this illness, which is fortunately mostly transient.

Up-to-date reviews on all aspects of feed science, from protein evaluation to food processing and methods of improving feed value are contained in this book. The volume has been compiled by leading scientists in the field of feed science in animal production. An interesting historical account of feed science and feed evaluation starting with the use of hay equivalents to the more recent calorimetry assessment of metabolizable energy is given, together with pointers for the way forward. Different aspects of feed science, from plant chemistry to feed evaluation, both for ruminant and non-ruminant animals are discussed including new systems of protein and energy evaluation. Considerable attention is given to the effects of feed processing and feed preservation as it affects nutritive value and physiology of digestion in animals. Aspects of fat digestion, and the latest knowledge on the dynamics of forage digestion in ruminants are discussed. The effect on nutritive value when different feeds are combined for ruminants is examined along with recent methods for improving the nutritive value of roughage. Methods of using agroindustrial waste and by-products in feeding are also included.
