Study of Sting Challenge and Serological Responses to Jack Jumper Venom Immunotherapy With Inulin as Adjuvant (Jumpvax)
The purpose of this study is to assess the potential use of delta-inulin as an adjuvant to facilitate the desired immune response to Jack Jumper Ant (JJA) venom with a lower dose of venom, thus reducing adverse reactions, venom requirements and costs of treatment. Specifically we aim to compare outcomes of in-hospital JJA sting challenges and JJA venom specific IgE, and IgG4 responses to semi-rush JJA VIT at maintenance doses of 25 and 50 mcg of JJA venom, with and without delta-inulin adjuvant.
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.
Study to Determine the Efficacy and Safety of Dupilumab in Adult and Adolescent Patients With Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)
The primary objectives of the study by study part are: Part A: To determine the treatment effect of dupilumab compared with placebo in adult and adolescent patients with EoE after 24 weeks of treatment as assessed by histological and clinical measures, and to inform/confirm the final sample size determination for Part B. Part B: To demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab treatment compared with placebo in adult and adolescent patients with EoE after 24 weeks of treatment as assessed by histological and clinical measures. Part C: To assess the safety and efficacy of dupilumab treatment in adult and adolescent patients ...
Study to Evaluate Dupilumab Monotherapy in Pediatric Patients With Peanut Allergy
The primary objective of the study is to assess the tolerability of peanut protein in pediatric patients (6-17 years old) treated with dupilumab monotherapy, in which tolerability is defined as the proportion of patients who safely pass a double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge (DBPCFC) at week 24. The secondary objectives are: - To determine whether dupilumab treatment improves peanut tolerability, defined as a change in the cumulative tolerated dose (log transformed) of peanut protein during a DBPCFC - To evaluate the safety and tolerability of dupilumab treatment in peanut allergic patients ...
Study to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of Dupilumab in Pediatric Patients With Active Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)
The Primary objective is to demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab treatment compared with placebo in pediatric patients with active eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) based on histologic improvement meeting validated histologic criteria. The Secondary objectives are: - To demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab compared to placebo in pediatric patients with active EoE after 16 weeks of treatment as assessed by endoscopic visual measurements of disease activity using the Eosinophilic Esophagitis-Endoscopic Reference Score (EoE-EREFS) and histologic abnormalities as measured by the EoE Histology Scoring System ...
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 ...
Synbiotic Extensively Hydrolysed Feed Study
This study of the tolerance and acceptability of a extensively hydrolysed formula (eHF) containing pre- and probiotics will assess gastrointestinal (GI) tolerance, product intake and acceptability in 40 infants (aged <13 months) currently using or requiring an extensively hydrolysed formula for the dietary management of CMA. Patients already prescribed an eHF (or other appropriate feed for CMA) at time of recruitment will undertake a 3 day baseline period in which their current symptoms, compliance, GI tolerance and acceptability towards their current feed is assessed, before introducing the study product for a period of 4 weeks. Patients...
The Basophil Activation Test as a Diagnostic Tool in Pediatric Food Allergy
Background: The need for an oral food challenge (OFC) surrogate is growing in line with the continuous increase in the prevalence and severity of paediatric food allergy. The basophil activation test (BAT) has recently been reported as a promising tool for predicting the outcome of OFC in children. Objective: We make the hypothesis that BAT might improve the sensitivity of food allergy diagnosis and spare part of current OFC in paediatric patients attending allergy departments in Marseille APHM University hospitals. Methods: BAT will be performed in parallel with OFC in 100 paediatric patients receiving OFC during a diagnostic or...
The Development of Novel Clinical Tests to Diagnose and Monitor Asthma in Preschool Children
The study will ascertain the ability of preschool lung function tests to distinguish healthy children from those with wheeze, and to differentiate phenotypes of wheezy children (high and low risk for asthma as defined by API) in order to predict response to therapy, and to explore the correlation between preschool lung function test results and symptoms, in order to develop objective methods for monitoring asthma.
The EAT-On Study: Sensitisation, Allergy and Child Health
The EAT Study showed a reduction in both sensitisation (to all foods) and clinical food allergy (to peanut and egg) among children who consumed allergenic food early compared with those who followed standard government feeding advice to exclusively consume breast milk for the first 6 months of life. The EAT-On Study aims to establish whether the effects seen at 3 years in the EAT study represent a delay in FA onset or sustained tolerance. EAT-On will also investigate the natural history (emergence and resolution) of FA in childhood; thus shaping dietary and management plans for allergic patients. Findings will inform future research and ...
