Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
30 patients with milk allergy (at least 18 year olds), 30 patients with peanut allergy and 30 patients with egg allergy are treated with OIT. The diagnosis of food allergy is verified with positive history, skin prick test, egg and milk allergen specific IgE antibodies. In addition, food allergy is verified with an open label (milk allergy) or blind (peanut and egg allergy) allergen specific challenge test. Quality of life, anxiety and patient history data is collected by questionnaires. All the patients undergo a spirometry with a bronchodilatator test, exhaled nitric oxide test and a methacholine challenge before and a year after oral immunotherapy. All the patients undergoing oral immunotherapy are prescribed with emergency medication such as antihistamine tablets, prednisolon tablets (40mg for three days in adults), epinephrine autoinjector (300 µg per dose) and salbutamol or terbutaline inhalator.
