In Reply We thank Park for the comments on our study.1 We would like to point out that the Atopic Dermatitis Anti-IgE Pediatric Trial (ADAPT) did not set out to study the role of ultraviolet (UV) therapy in atopic dermatitis (AD) or compare it with omalizumab in children. The study on UV therapy2 quoted by Park was not a randomized clinical trial. Therefore, the results are not directly comparable and should be interpreted with caution.
