Abstract

Design:

Qualitative case study and mathematical model.

Setting:

Belgium.

Objectives:

To evaluate the correlation between the polyamine mean concentration of the milk drunk during the first postnatal month and the appearance of allergy in children who drank this milk.

Results:

A model that describes the dependence of the allergy appearance with the spermine mean concentration of milk drunk during the first postnatal month was established.

Conclusions:

This model shows that 5.02 nmol ml−1 of spermine is a critical value to prevent the appearance of allergy.
