Study Description
Brief Summary:
The Primary Objective of the study is to develop a customized regimen for oral immunotherapy that reflects what the subject is allergic in a clinically significant way (i.e., the offending food allergen is defined as a food allergen with a positive skin test or positive specific IgE and a positive DBPCFC). Therefore, the investigators prefer that both single and multiple food allergy subjects are included in the study.

Ages Eligible for Study:   4 Years to 55 Years   (Child, Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Moderate to severe peanut and/or egg and/or milk and/or tree nut and/or seed allergic subjects between the ages of 4 to 55 years old.
  • Sensitivity to food allergen will be documented by a positive skin prick test result (see Appendix for details) or allergen specific ImmunoCAP IgE level with 7 kU/L as a lower limit of eligibility.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • No absolute contraindications are known. However, the risk of serious systemic anaphylactic reactions to food allergens suggests a number of preexisting conditions that should be considered relative contraindications. Among those conditions are acute infections, autoimmune disease, severe cardiac disease, and treatment with beta-adrenergic antagonistic drugs (beta-blockers).
  • Subjects having a history of severe anaphylaxis to food allergens that will be desensitized in this study requiring intubation or admission to an ICU, frequent allergic or non-allergic urticaria, or history consistent with poorly controlled persistent asthma.
