Visits were carried out before the birth of the infant, and at 2 weeks and 4, 8, 12, 18, and 24 months, 7 years, and 15 years after birth. Information was collected via physician assessments, questionnaires, and home assessments.
A computer-generated list of random numbers was used to determine allocation into intervention or control groups, separately for each center. A statistician placed the group allocation for each identification number in a sealed envelope. In total, 278 mothers were randomly allocated to the intervention group and 267 to the control (usual care) group.
Our intervention included measures to reduce exposure to house dust mite and pet allergens, avoidance of environmental tobacco smoke, encouragement of breastfeeding, and the use of a partially hydrolyzed formula.
