Efficacy, Safety, and Pharmacokinetics of APT-1011 in Subjects With Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE)
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an inflammatory disease of the esophagus, characterized by eosinophilic infiltration and gastrointestinal symptoms. Swallowed, topically acting corticosteroids, such as fluticasone, appear to be effective in resolving acute clinical and pathological features of EoE. APT-1011 is an orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) formulation of fluticasone propionate. This study is designed to compare the efficacy and safety of APT-1011 with placebo in adults with EoE for an initial 12-week treatment period, followed by an additional 40-week maintenance treatment phase. Histologic response, pharmacokinetics, and...
Egg Allergy Oral Desensitization
This study evaluates whether tolerance to eggs can be induced in patients through a process of oral immunotherapy. Participants will be randomized into groups receiving oral immunotherapy and a control group that will receive no intervention
EoE Food Desensitization
This is a single-center, prospective, pilot clinical trial in which children ages 3-17 years with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) who have a known food that triggers EoE flares receive oral desensitization with that specific food antigen, followed by reintroduction of that food into the diet. The purpose of this study is to investigate the safety and feasibility of oral desensitization in children with EoE so that, if determined to be safe, can be repeated on a larger scale to determine efficacy.
EoE RCT Fluticasone and Omeprazole vs Fluticasone Alone
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of combination therapy with omeprazole and swallowed fluticasone vs fluticasone therapy and placebo in the treatment of Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) in children and adults. This study will be a double-blinded, randomized controlled trial. The primary outcome measured will be histologic assessment of esophageal tissue biopsies measuring number of eosinophils per high power field (eos/hpf). Secondary outcomes will be endoscopic findings and symptomatic changes following therapy using validated endoscopic scoring measures and participant surveys, respectively.
Epidemiological Investigation and Cohort Study on Food Allergy in Children Aged 3 to 6 Years in Wenzhou and Taizhou Urban Areas
Objective 1. To investigate the status of food allergy among children aged 3 to 6 in Wenzhou and Taizhou urban areas. 2. To obtain the self-reported rate of parents or guardians of food allergy among children aged 3 to 6 in Wenzhou and Taizhou urban areas. 3. To obtain the prevalence of food allergy among children aged 3 to 6 in Wenzhou and Taizhou urban areas by conducting skin prick test (SPT), blood eosinophil (EOS) count, total immunoglobulin E (tIgE) measurement and serum specific IgE (sIgE) determination in children who self-reported food allergy, and conducting the open food challenge (OFC) if ...
Epigenetic Effects in Children With Cow's Milk Allergy Treated With Different Formulas
Lactobacillus GG (LGG) is able to exert long lasting effects in children with atopic disorders. Nutramigen LGG accelerates tolerance acquisition in infants with cow's milk allergy. The mechanisms of these effects are still largely undefined. The effect of LGG could be related at least in part by the immunoregulatory role played by LGG. This probiotic can balance the generation of cytokines possibly involved in IgE- or non-IgE-mediated cow's milk allergy Interleulkin (IL)-4, IL-5, IL-10, IFN-γ , TGF-β, and TNF-Υ), which can contribute to modulation of inflammatory processes. The investigators have demonstrated that children with IgE-mediated...
Esophageal String Test in Eosinophilic Esophagitis
The overall goal of this study is to develop a novel minimally invasive device, the Esophageal String Test (EST) to monitor esophageal inflammation during treatment of the rare disease Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) in a safe and efficacious manner. This study is broken down into 2 specific aims: Specific Aim 1: Identify the EoE Biomarker Panel (EBP) that will improve the sensitivity and specificity of the EST for documenting esophageal inflammation in a 1-hour time point. Specific Aim 2: Validate the ability of the EST EBP to monitor therapeutic efficacy in a 1-hour sampling time. Funding Source - FDA OOPD
Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Oral Encapsulated Fecal Microbiota Transplant in Peanut Allergic Patients
This is a Phase I trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of oral encapsulated fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) in the treatment of peanut allergy. In this research the investigators would like to learn more about ways to treat peanut allergies. There is currently no known cure for peanut allergy. The primary aim is to assess safety and tolerability of oral FMT in patients with peanut allergy aged 18-40 years.
Evaluation of Medical Care and Patient's Knowledge About the Behavior to Take on Secondary Prevention of Anaphylaxis
Anaphylaxis is a hypersensitivity reaction systemic, generalized, severe, life-threatening that may result from exposure to a triggering factor. The prevalence of anaphylaxis is 0.05 to 2% in the general population. Most reactions appear within 30 minutes after contact with the triggering factor and last up to 6 hours. The main triggering factors are: 1/food, 2/hymenopteran bites, 3/drugs. The main treatment is the early administration of adrenaline by Intramuscular route on medical prescription or by AAI (adrenaline auto-injector) associated with the exclusion of the allergen. Adrenaline treatment should be administered as soon as...
Evaluation of the Hypoallergenicity of a New Formula Based on Hydrolyzed Rice Proteins
The aim of this study is to show the hypoallergenicity of a new thickened rice based formula (TRHF) through a double blind placebo controlled food challenge (DBPCFC), as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, in subjects with IgE-mediated CMA and in subjects with non-IgE-mediated CMA.
