  Title Is infant colic an allergic response to cow's milk? What is the evidence? [review]
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2013 Jun;14(1):1097-1102
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Review

Background: Despite enormous effort spent in determining a cause for infant colic, the source of the problem still eludes researchers.

Objective: To review the published evidence to establish whether infant colic is due to an allergic reaction to cow's milk.

Method: A literature search was completed using Medline, Cochrane Clinical Review and a hand search from 1980 to March 2013. Publications were included if they were systematic reviews, RCTs with a control group, or specifically related to dietary interventions.

Conclusion: There is no clear evidence that infant colic is a form of cow's milk protein allergy (CMPA). Research trials have been contaminated with a subgroup of infants who have been diagnosed with colic who actually have CMPA. Future studies need to subgroup the irritable infant to better understand the etiology of colic.
