In this paper, infant participants were assumedly managed by their primary caregivers at home. There are obviously some variables that are easily controlled for when a study involves infants who are under constant supervision by their caregivers - this is a great benefit to working with infants.

But perhaps an even bigger benefit to working with infants, (particularly in allergy and immune research) is that they, with their still-developing immune systems, probably hold the key to many unanswered questions.

In an ideal world, would allergy research or intervention always begin in infancy?
