Diagnostic Equivalence of the Skin Prick Test Tape vs. Conventional Skin PrickTest
Testing of a new ready-to-use Tape in comparison to the currently used skin prick test for the diagnosis of allergies. Assessment of clinical equivalence of the SPT Tape for representative common inhalant allergens to conventional SPT in terms of wheal reaction positivity and overall safety. Tests are performed in patients who have a medical history of relevant allergic rhinitis to any of the tested allergens.
Dietary Choice for the Management of Cow's Milk Allergy Influences Other Allergic Manifestations
Food allergy is a common chronic condition in childhood. Recent studies have suggested that the natural history of food allergy has changed during the last two decades, with an increased prevalence, severity of clinical manifestations, and risk of persistence into later ages. The increased food allergy prevalence in children has an important economic impact, with significant direct costs for the healthcare system and even larger costs for the families of food-allergic patients. In addition, children with food allergies are at increased risk to develop other allergic manifestations later in life. According to a recent study, children with a...
Dietary Factors and Disfluency: A Look Into Food Allergies and Other Environmental Triggers Associated With Variations in Severity of Vocal Cord Tension.
The purpose of this study is to see whether participants with persistent developmental disfluency who report fluctuational disfluency due to vocal cord tension on a day to day basis of can achieve a more normalized fluency by identifying dietary allergen responses and subsequently eliminating these dietary triggers from their daily consumption.
Dupilumab in Eosinophilic Gastritis
40 participants with Eosinophilic Gastritis 18-60 years of age will be randomly assigned with dupilumab or placebo subcutaneous injections every two weeks for a total of 12 weeks. Study subjects who complete the 12-week treatment phase, may continue into an open label extension study, where dupilumab will be administered every two weeks for a total of 24 weeks.
Early Peanut Introduction: Translation to Clinical Practice
The recent finding that early introduction of peanut can prevent ~70-90% of peanut allergy is a major step towards prevention of food allergy. However, because that finding was from a clinical trial in a very select population, there are several major questions that must be answered in order to implement these findings into clinical practice without causing more harm than good. These questions include who, if anyone, should be screened prior to early introduction for peanut allergy, how this screening should be done, and what quantity of peanut ingestion is needed to prevent peanut allergy. The goal of this project is to answer these...
E-B-FAHF-2, Multi OIT and Xolair (Omalizumab) for Food Allergy
The purpose of this study is testing the use E-B-FAHF-2 Chinese herbal therapy in combination with multi-food oral immunotherapy (OIT) and Xolair® (Omalizumab) to help children and adults who are allergic to foods be able to safely tolerate food allergens. Specifically in this protocol, the food allergens are milk, egg, peanut, almond, cashew, hazelnut, walnut, sesame, and/or wheat. Omalizumab is considered an investigational drug for the treatment of food allergies in children and adults. Investigational means it has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the U.S. The researchers hope to learn whether the ...
Effect of Camel Milk on Insulin and Incretin Response
To examine the differential effect of camel and cow milk on the physiological response, to a liquid mixed-meal challenge, in people with normal glucose tolerance
Effect of Mediterranean Diet During Pregnancy on Gut Microbiota and on the Epigenetics
Food allergies (AA) are adverse reactions to food. Over the last decade, the AA scenario has changed profoundly. In many countries, there has been a significant increase in the prevalence, persistence and severity of AAs and a consequent increase in the socio-economic impact associated with these conditions. For these reasons, there is a strong need to develop effective strategies to prevent these conditions. To date, the AA etiopathogenesis is not yet fully defined. Genetic factors may predispose certain subjects to the development of AA, but these alone can not explain the change observed in the AA scenario over the last few years, ...
Effect of Sublingual Immunotherapy in Patients With Atopic Dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic and recurrent inflammatory disease, prevalent between 1 and 20% in the world population, with a predominance of childhood, but which may be present in adult life. AD results from a complex interaction between genetic and environmental factors, with the presence of a defect in the skin barrier and deregulation of the immune response, culminating in an inflammatory response in the skin predominantly type 2. Disease control is based on restoring skin hydration, smoothing itching and controlling the process specific sensitizing agents such as inhalant allergens and foods that may pathogenesis of the disease....
Effects of Swallowed Steroids on Bone Density and Growth in Pediatric Eosinophilic Esophagitis
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is characterized by allergy-driven inflammation of the esophagus leading to a variety of gastrointestinal symptoms and increased healthcare utilization. While considered a rare disease, EoE is rapidly increasing in prevalence in the United States. Treatment options are limited and include dietary modifications with the elimination of suspected food triggers or pharmacological options including proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and swallowed corticosteroids. Compliance to strict elimination diets is difficult thus many patients elect to use swallowed corticosteroids. Because nearly half of all EoE patients are...
