Soy formula for prevention of allergy and food intolerance in infants

Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health

In the evaluation of "Soy formula for prevention of allergy and food intolerance in infants" by Osborn DA, Sinn J., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that all enrolling infants at high risk of allergy on the basis of a family history of allergy in a first degree relative. All studies compared use of a soy to a cow's milk formula. Two studies also included a group fed a formula containing hydrolysed protein. No eligible study enrolled infants fed human milk. No study examined the effect of early, short term soy formula feeding. Three studies were of good methodology and did not have unbalanced allergy-preventing co-interventions in the treatment groups. Comparing soy to cow's milk formula, one study with unclear allocation concealment and 19.5% losses to follow up reported a reduction in cumulative incidence of childhood allergy, asthma and allergic rhinitis. No other study reported a significant benefit for any allergy or food intolerance. Analysis found no significant difference in allergy cumulative incidence in infancy (one study: RR 1.02, 95% CI 0.69, 1.49) or childhood (3 studies: typical RR 0.73, 95% CI 0.37, 1.44) and no significant difference in cumulative incidence or period prevalence of any specific allergy or food intolerance in infancy or childhood. Analysis of studies comparing soy to a hydrolysed formula found a significant increase in infant (one study: RR 1.67, 95% CI 1.03, 2.69) and childhood allergy cumulative incidence (one study: RR 1.55, 95% CI 1.02, 2.35), infant eczema cumulative incidence (2 studies: typical RR 2.34, 95% CI 1.51, 3.62) and childhood food allergy period prevalence (one study: RR 1.81, 95% CI 1.09, 3.02) and concluded that Feeding with a soy formula should not be recommended for the prevention of allergy or food intolerance in infants at high risk of allergy or food intolerance.
