CoMiSS, the “Cow’s Milk related Symptom Score”,  is a valuable resource for healthcare professionals, parents, and carers alike, offering an easy-to-use awareness tool that supports the recognition of cow’s milk-related symptoms in infants and young children.

2024 marks the 10th anniversary of CoMiSS, prompting us to look back at the decade of science and clinical practice behind the tool. The podcast reflects on the tool’s inception, its impact on aiding earlier diagnosis, and its role in evaluating therapeutic interventions for managing symptoms of cow’s milk allergy (CMA).
