Atopic Dermatitis

What we do

Dermatite atopica

This epidemiological study on atopic dermatitis promoted by Centro Studi GISED aimed at:

  1. Assessing the incidence of atopic dermatitis in children from birth to the first year of life.
  2. Estimating the risk factors in the development of atopic dermatitis.

It started in 2007 and included 1081 newborns in several maternity wards of Bergamo and province, with follow-up at 6 and 12 months. Given the limited knowledge on the possible causes related to the development of the disease, the study aimed at depicting a profile of the potential risk factors, providing an estimate of their relevance and strength of association with the disease (allergy familiarity, life and eating habits of children and their families).

The study was unable to document associations with other perinatal factors, particularly breast feeding and parental smoking in the perinatal period.


The results were published here:
