We identified and selected eligible literature irrespective of publication status, language, study design and type of publication (clinical trial, case report, review, etc.). Electronic searches included MEDLINE (1970 to June 2006; at the website, looking for the following words (all fields): ('chronic constipation' or 'constipation') and ('food intolerance' or 'allergy'). References from reviews on chronic constipation or food allergy and from the articles selected for our study were also examined in search of relevant articles. We also identified papers via the bibliographies in relevant articles and hand searches of specialist journals and conference proceedings.
