From: High incidence and remission of reported food hypersensitivity in Swedish children followed from 8 to 12 years of age – a population based cohort study

Any FHS 274 (14.7) 274 (14.7) 167 (32.7)
  1. *Children without any FHS at age 8 constituted the population at risk (n = 1868).
  2. **Children without FHS to the specific food at age 8 constituted the populations at risk.
  3. ***Children with FHS to the specific food at age 8 constituted the populations at risk.
