Abstract 250 infants from atopic families were investigated to determine the relation between serum IgE concentrations and the development of atopic symptoms. In 44 (17.6\%) atopy developed before the age of two years, 60 (24\%) had doubtful symptoms, and 146 (58.4\%) were clinically clear. Those who were definitely affected had higher serum IgE than those who were unaffected but 50\% of them had serum IgE within the normal range. 9\% of the clinically unaffected infants had raised serum IgE. Breast-feeding was in no way protective against either the development of atopy or an increase in IgE to abnormal levels.
