Morphological Markers of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
The purpose of this project is to learn more about a new and promising way to diagnose acid reflux disease using a very high-powered microscope. This special microscope provides much finer detail than typical microscopes previously used for diagnosing reflux, and may help doctors to better identify children with acid reflux.
Oral Immunotherapy for Desensitization in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults With Hen Egg Allergy
To determine the efficacy and safety of AR201 in a characterized oral desensitization immunotherapy (CODIT™) regimen in hen egg-allergic subjects aged 4 to 26 years, inclusive.
Oral Immunotherapy in Food Allergy in Finland
The outcomes of oral immunotherapy (OIT) in food allergy study will provide more knowledge of oral immunotherapy. So far the OIT has showed in clinical experiments to be a interesting way to increase the unresponsiveness in severe food allergies. However little is known about it´s long-term outcomes, immunological mechanisms and there are no previous studies about cost-utility of OIT.
Peanut Allergy Oral Immunotherapy Desensitization
The purpose of the study is to determine how a type of treatment for peanut allergy known as oral desensitization works in the immune system.
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.
Preventing Atopic Dermatitis and ALLergies in Children
The primary objective is of the PreventADALL study is to test if primary prevention of allergic diseases is possible by simple and low cost strategies, and secondary to asses the impact of xenobiotic exposure and microbiota in and on the body and the environment on allergic disease development. The secondary objective is an exploratory focus to investigate early life risk factors for development of non-communicable diseases, including asthma and allergic diseases as well as for diseases that may share common risk factors, including cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes. Design: A multi-national population-based...
Study in Pediatric Subjects With Peanut Allergy to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of Dupilumab as Adjunct to AR101 (Peanut Oral Immunotherapy)
Primary objective is to assess whether dupilumab as adjunct to AR101 compared to placebo improves desensitization at the completion of up-dosing, defined as an increase in the proportion of participants who pass a post up-dosing double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge (DBPCFC) at visit 16. Secondary objectives are: - To assess whether dupilumab as adjunct to AR101 compared to placebo improves desensitization at the completion of up-dosing, defined as an increase in the cumulative tolerated dose (log transformed) of peanut protein during a post up-dosing DBPCFC at visit 16 - To assess...
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.
Using Spectrally Encoded Confocal Microscopy (SECM) to Image the Esophagus
The goal of this study is to test the feasibility and the tolerability of a tethered spectrally encoded confocal microscopy (SECM) capsule and to use it to image the esophagus.
Walnut Oral Immunotherapy for Tree Nut Allergy
The purpose of this study is to determine if walnut oral immunotherapy can be used in subjects allergic to tree nuts to reduce tree nut allergy and induce changes in the subject's immune system.
