University College Cork's Online Calculator Predicts Food Allergies In Children

March 3, 2011: 07:05 AM EST
Researchers at the University College Cork, Ireland (UCC) have developed an online calculator that can in seconds predict with 96 percent precision whether a child has any of the three main food allergies: dairy, peanuts and eggs. The mathematical model is based on algorithms specific to the allergen, and the combination of known and suspected predictors delivers better prediction accuracy than the 61-81% typical in current methods. The Cork-Southampton calculator could be marketed this year and help reduce the cost of food-allergy testing.
