Nestlé Health Science to Launch Cow Milk Protein Allergy Assessment Tool
April 14

Nestlé Health Science is introducing an assessment tool to help healthcare professionals identify cases of Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA) in infants.

Some infants develop an allergy to cow’s milk when their immune system mistakenly sees the milk protein as something the body should fight off. CMPA can cause an infant to be fussy and irritable due to an upset stomach and other symptoms.

CMPA is usually difficult to diagnose because many of its symptoms are non-specific, which means its symptoms are common with other medical conditions seen in infants and children.

The new Cow’s Milk-related Symptom Score Tool (CoMiSS), developed by a panel of leading international experts and funded by an unrestricted grant by Nestlé Health Science, is designed to help healthcare professionals identify the allergy at an earlier stage.
