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...
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.
Efficacy of Local Food Extracts at Different Storage Times
Local lyophylized food extracts are available useful in skin prick test and atopy patch test to confirm food allergy. However, the investigators want to know the duration that the investigators can keep the extracts for the usage in this purpose.
Efficacy of the "Milk Ladder" Intervention in the Development of Tolerance and the Recognition of B Cell Epitopes in Babies Who Are Allergic to Cow's Milk Proteins
Food allergies have become a relevant health problem in westernized societies, particularly, with children. Cow's milk (CM), along with hen's eggs, are the most common foods eliciting allergic reactions in children under 4 years of age. The main objective of this intervention study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the intervention known as "The Milk Ladder" in the development of tolerance by children with CM allergies. This will be compared to an historical cohort (CoALE), which investigated the natural history of this allergy. Additionally, the ability of informative epitopes will be evaluated for their potential to predict...
