The Authors report an update relative to the dietetic prevention strategies in the high allergic risk subject, as proposed from more recent literature. The babies with a familiar history of atopia are defined as population with allergic risk. The Authors examine the role of early exposure to cow's milk formulas and maternal diet during breast-feeding as risk factors for allergic symptoms in such babies. Moreover, they examine the indications for hydrolisated milk (partial and extensive) formulas and soy milk formulas use, as reported in published Meta-analysis and official statements of several Scientific Associations. They conclude that beyond the undoubted preventive role of exclusive breast-feeding in the first 4-6 month after birth, and of the extensively hydrolisated formulas, there are many concerns about the role for partially hydrolisated formulas and soy formulas. The Authors claim for multicentric methodologically correct trials in order to clear the controversies.
