Screening Protocol for Genetic Diseases of Allergic Inflammation
Background: - Mast cells are responsible for most symptoms of allergic reactions. In some allergic diseases, it is unusually easy to cause mast cells to release their contents and cause allergic reactions. In other cases, mast cells grow abnormally and, in rare cases, can result in tumors. Mast cells also control other parts of the immune system. - Understanding why mast cells behave abnormally in allergic diseases is important to finding better ways for diagnosing and treating these potentially life-threatening disorders. Objectives: - To screen mast cells at the genetic and...
Seal, Stopping Eczema and Allergy Study
This is a randomized, controlled trial designed for children who are have already developed atopic dermatitis (AD or eczema) by 12 weeks of age. The aim is to compare the effect of proactive sequential skin care, including the twice-daily use of a tri-lipid skin barrier cream (Epiceram) or moisturizer and proactive use of fluticasone propionate cream, against reactive AD therapy, to reduce the occurrence and severity of AD in early infancy and thereby prevent food allergy (FA).
Study of Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of Remibrutinib in Adult Participants With an Allergy to Peanuts
A study to evaluate the safety, efficacy and tolerability of remibrutinib at three doses versus placebo in adult participants who have a confirmed allergy to peanuts. The efficacy will be measured by the ability of participants to tolerate increasing doses of peanut protein during an oral food challenge after 1 month of study treatment.
Study of Gastric Motility in Eosinophilic Gastritis
Purpose: The study is a cross-sectional observational study designed to determine if eosinophilic gastritis (EG) results in gastric motility impairment. Hypothesis: Gastric dysfunction occurs in the natural history of EG but is underdiagnosed due, in part, to contraindications to the use of the standard meals used in gastric emptying studies.
Study to Assess Tolerance of Traces in Peanut/Tree Nut Allergic Children.
This protocol will help better define whether patients with peanut and/or tree nut food allergy can tolerate traces in products with precautionary allergen labelling.
Sublingual Immunotherapy Compared to Intralymphatic Immunotherapy With Concomitant Vitamin D, a Randomised Placebo Controlled Study
A national, multicenter, randmised double blind study with parallell arms. 360 patients with grass induced allergic rhinitis will be open randomised 1:2 to 3 years Grazax sublingual immunotherapy or 3 intralymphatic injections with ALK Alutard Timothy. In a second step, the ILIT group will be double blind randomised 1:1 to an intramuscular injection of Vitamin D Vicotrat or placebo, 4 week before the start of the intralymphatic treatment. The primary outcome measure is daily combined symptoms and medication scores during grass pollen season.
Survey About the Relationship Beetween Allergic Rhinitis and Seasonal EOE Exacerbations
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic inflammatory esophagus disease that is presented in patients with a history of recurrent dysphagia. EoE is closely related to other pathologies with an immuno-allergic etiopathogenesis such as atopic dermatitis (AD), IgE-mediated food allergy, allergic rhinitis and bronchial asthma. While the importance of the correlation between diet and food allergy has been largely demonstrated, less is known about the exact role of sensitization to aerollergens in the progression and recrudescence of symptoms. In support of this correlation there is evidence of a seasonal trend in the new...
Swedish Study of Immunotherapy for Milk Allergy in Children
This trial is a two-armed open randomized controlled trial in children aged 5-15 years with challenge proven Immunoglobulin E (IgE)-associated milk allergy.The purpose is to determine if oral immunotherapy with milk can induce tolerance to milk. The active intervention is intake of increasing amounts of fresh milk for six months followed by three years of maintenance treatment with milk. The control group continues their elimination (milk free) diet. The trial will recruit patients at ten pediatric departments in Sweden, coordinated by Umeå University. The primary outcome is milk tolerance (defined as a negative double-blind ...
Synbiotics Cohort Study
Observational study exploring the clinical outcomes of infants with cow's milk allergy who are prescribed a hypoallergenic formula containing synbiotics.
Systems Biology of Early Atopy
The goal of this study is to establish a birth cohort that collects prenatal and early life biosamples and environmental samples and rigorously phenotypes young children for food allergy and Atopic Dermatitis (AD) to identify prenatal and early life markers of high risk for food allergy and AD, as well as biological pathways (endotypes) that result in these conditions. Primary Objectives: - To study the role and interrelationships of established and novel clinical, environmental, biological, and genetic prenatal and early-life factors in the development of allergic diseases through age 3 years, with an...
