Peanut Oral Immunotherapy in Children: IMPACT Follow Up Study
This application is being submitted as a follow-up to Protocol "Oral Immunotherapy for Induction of Tolerance in Peanut Allergic Children-The IMPACT Study." The IMPACT study was a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of peanut oral immunotherapy in children 12-48 months of age. As part this protocol, all participants who received placebo treatment were promised the opportunity to receive open label treatment at the conclusion of the double-blind phase and initial follow-up. At the time of submitting that protocol, the investigator did not specify any detailed protocol for the open label crossover treatment, as this is an evolving field,...
Peanut Oral Immunotherapy in Children With Peanut Allergy
Many children who are allergic to peanuts do not outgrow their allergy and have very severe allergic reactions called anaphylaxis. Symptoms of anaphylaxis include difficulty breathing, decreased blood pressure, hives, and lip or throat swelling after exposure to an allergen. A severe allergic reaction can lead to death if not treated appropriately. The purpose of this study is to find out if there is a way to treat children with peanut allergy to help lower the risk of severe allergic reactions and also cause them to lose their allergy to peanuts. The approach that will used for this study is a process called "desensitization". Oral...
Peanut Oral Immunotherapy Study of Early Intervention for Desensitization
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of AR101 in peanut‑allergic children aged 1 to < 4 years.
Peanut Reactivity Reduced by Oral Tolerance in an Anti-IgE Clinical Trial
The investigators will perform a double blind, placebo controlled clinical trial with Xolair (omalizumab) at four centers to safely and rapidly desensitize patients with severe peanut allergy. The investigators will determine if pretreatment with anti-IgE mAb (Xolair/omalizumab) can greatly reduce allergic reactions and allow for faster and safer desensitization.
Perioperative Anaphylaxis in an Egyptian Population.
Perioperative anaphylaxis is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Most textbooks describe it as a rare event of the order of 1 in 10 to 1 in 20,000 general anaesthetic cases. However, a recent study in the United Kingdom suggested that 1 in 350 cases have features suspicious of perioperative anaphylaxis. This study suggests that perioperative anaphylaxis may be under recognised and under reported. When perioperative anaphylaxis is recognised, it would be ideal to carry out investigations firstly to confirm the diagnosis of anaphylaxis and secondly to identify the causative agent. The latter can be difficult in the context...
PIFR-based Inhalation Therapy in Patients Recovering From AECOPD
This study is designed to determine whether the optimized inhalation therapy based on peak inspiratory flow rates (PIFR) measured against the simulated resistance can reduce the rate of treatment failure in patients recovering from acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD). Errors in inhaler use and quality of life are also to be evaluated. The study will recruit 460 patients with AECOPD whose exacerbated symptoms are relieved by 5-7 days of standard therapy. The participants are divided into PIFR group and control group in a 1:1 ratio according to a random number table method. All the patients will be given ...
Pilot Study on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Food Allergy
Recently, there has been an increasing interest in using traditional Chinese medicine for food allergy. The Harvard group has successfully demonstrated the Food Allergy Herbal Formula - FAHF2 completely blocked peanut-induced anaphylaxis in a murine model, and currently being studied in human. Therefore, in collaboration with the Institute of Chinese Medicine, CUHK, the investigators have developed a more simplified Chinese herbal formula - X (CHFX), containing four food-grade Chinese herbs, Wu-mei (Fructus Pruni Mume); Ling-zhi (Gonoderma); Huang-bai (Cortex Phellodendron) and Zhi-su (Perilla frutescens). In the present study, the...
Post-marketing Safety Surveillance of Breviscapine Powder-Injection : a Registry Study
This registry aims to monitor the safety of Breviscapine Powder-Injection and to identify the potential risk factors for the adverse drug reactions.
Post-marketing Safety Surveillance of Xueshuantong-Injection : a Registry Study
This registry aims to monitor the safety of Xueshuantong Injection and to identify the potential risk factors for the adverse drug reactions.
Predictors of Persistent Peanut Allergy at Age 5 Years
The purpose of this study is to determine if avoidance of peanut by children with positive allergy testing to peanut in the first 5 years of life increases the likelihood of developing a persistent peanut allergy by age 5 years. To answer this question, the investigators need to determine which children with positive allergy testing to peanut have reactions after eating peanut (allergic to peanut) and which are able to tolerate eating peanut (not allergic). The investigators plan to conduct double-blind placebo-controlled peanut challenges (gold standard for peanut allergy diagnosis) for CHILD study (http://www.canadianchildstudy.ca) ...
