Early Origins of Allergy and Asthma
Birth cohort study with recruitment during pregnancy to determine prenatal and perinatal conditions, as well as genetic and epigenetic factors, that participate in the early setting of immune responses, and the role of these in the later determination of the risk of allergic diseases, asthma, and metabolic conditions in the offspring.
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, ...
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...
Efficacy and Safety APT-1011 in Subjects With Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) (FLUTE-2)
This is a 2-part randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of APT-1011 in adults and adolescents (≥15 years) with EoE. Part A will evaluate the efficacy and safety of APT-1011 3 mg administered HS for the induction of response to treatment (histologic and symptomatic) over 12 weeks. Part B will evaluate histological relapse-free status in patients re-randomized to continue APT-1011 or placebo (active treatment withdrawal) until Week 52.
Efficacy and Safety of Three Doses of Florence Oral Suspension in Adults With Eosinophilic Esophagitis
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of three doses of Florence oral suspension on changes of eosinophilic infiltration in esophageal biopsies.
Efficacy and Safety of Viaskin Milk in Children With IgE-Mediated Cow's Milk Allergy
The objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Viaskin Milk after 12 months of epicutaneous immunotherapy (EPIT) treatment, for desensitizing IgE-mediated cow's milk allergic children and to assess the long-term safety and therapeutic benefit with Viaskin Milk.
