Socioeconomics may influence differences in food allergy outcomes among Asian children

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Asian American children displayed unique food allergy outcomes in a study comparing them with children of other races, possibly due to socioeconomic conditions, according to a poster presented here.
“This is the biggest Asian American cohort that has been reported so far,” Keerthi Bansal, MD, allergy and immunology fellow at Rush University Medical Center, told Healio. “It is important to study the racial/ethnic differences among different groups to help understand health disparities and explore factors that are contributing to some of these outcomes.”
