  1. Decrease/no change: [IgE value at 2nd (UA/mL) − IgE value at 1st (UA/mL)] ≤0; increase: [IgE value at 2nd (UA/mL) − IgE value at 1st (UA/mL)] > 0
  2. P values were obtained using multivariable logistic regression analysis adjusted for age at first carrier polymer-radioallergosorbent test (CAP-RAST), feeding, and allergic diseases (wheezing, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis)
