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.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
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.

|Cow's Milk Allergy|
This study is designed to assess the safety of baked milk oral immunotherapy among patients who are milk allergic and who do not pass a baked milk challenge.
Experimental: Baked Milk Immunotherapy
Subjects will receive baked milk oral immunotherapy with baked non-fat cow's milk powder as the intervention. Subjects will undergo an initial dose escalation, build-up, and then a maintenance period.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Subjects will receive oral immunotherapy with the placebo control (tapioca powder). Subjects will undergo an initial dose escalation, build-up, and then a maintenance period.
Drug: - Baked non-fat cow's milk powder
Oral immunotherapy with increasing quantities of baked milk.
