Use of a Partially Hydrolyzed Formula in the Dietary Prevention of Allergic Disease

Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2006;160(8):854-855. doi:10.1001/archpedi.160.8.854-c

We read with particular interest the article by Hays and Wood “A Systematic Review of the Role of Hydrolyzed Infant Formulas in Allergy Prevention”1 and appreciate being quoted twice. We confirm our preference for the use of partially hydrolyzed formula (PHF) for the nutritional prevention of allergy, but only in highly atopic subjects. Extensively hydrolyzed formulas are more expensive, have a bad taste, and do not satisfy the nutritional needs of the growing baby.2
