FARE Clinical Trial Finder
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.

Inclusion Criteria:Individuals who meet all of the following criteria are eligible for enrollment as study participants: 1. Participant and/or parent/legal guardian must be able to understand and provide informed consent and/or assent, as applicable; 2. Peanut allergic: participant must meet all of the following criteria to minimize the chance that the participant will develop natural tolerance to peanut over the course of the study: 1. Positive skin prick test (SPT) defined as ≥4 mm wheal greater than saline control) to peanut, 2. Positive peanut immunoglobulin E (IgE), ≥6 kUA/L, at Screening or within three months of Screening, determined by ImmunoCap, and 3. Positive double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge (DBPCFC), defined as experiencing dose-limiting symptoms at a single dose of ≤100 mg of peanut protein. 3. Allergic to at least two of the six other foods (milk, egg, wheat, cashew, hazelnut, walnut): each participant must meet all of the following criteria for at least two of the six other foods to minimize the chance that the participant will develop natural tolerance to at least two of the six other foods over the course of the study: 1. Positive SPT (≥4 mm wheal) to food, 2. Positive food specific IgE (≥6 kUA/L) at Screening or within three months of Screening, determined by ImmunoCap, and 3. Positive DBPCFC, defined as experiencing dose-limiting symptoms at a single dose of ≤300 mg of food protein. 4. With body weight (as measured at Screening) and total serum IgE level (as measured within three months of Screening) suitable for omalizumab dosing; 5. If female of child-bearing potential, must have a negative urine or serum pregnancy test; 6. For women of childbearing potential, must agree to:
- - remain abstinent (refrain from heterosexual intercourse), - use acceptable contraceptive methods (barrier methods, - oral, injected, or implanted hormonal methods of contraception, or - other forms of hormonal contraception that have comparable efficacy), - during the treatment period and for 60 days after the last dose of study drug.
Exclusion Criteria:Individuals who meet any of the following criteria are not eligible for enrollment as study participants: 1. Inability or unwillingness of a participant and/or parent/legal guardian to give written informed consent and/or assent or comply with the study protocol; 2. Clinically significant laboratory abnormalities at Screening; 3. Dose-limiting symptoms to the placebo portion of the Screening DBPCFC; 4. Sensitivity or suspected/known allergy to any ingredients (including excipients) of the
- - active or placebo oral food challenge (OFC) material, - multi-allergen oral immunotherapy (OIT), or - drugs related to omalizumab (e.g., monoclonal antibodies, polyclonal gamma globulin).
- - Note: Guidance for determination of sensitivity to excipients will be detailed in the study's Manual of Procedures (MOP).
- - pose additional risks from participation in the study, - may interfere with the participant's ability to comply with study requirements, or - may impact the quality or interpretation of the data obtained from the study.
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.

Food allergy affects about 15 million people in the United States. This includes 6 million children. The current treatment for food allergy is to avoid eating the foods that may cause an allergic reaction and have medications such as epinephrine (adrenaline) in case of a reaction. However, accidental exposures can be extremely difficult to avoid, particularly if you are allergic to multiple foods. The risks of accidental exposures and life-threatening reactions can place a large burden on patients and their families. Investigators in this study would like to learn if omalizumab injections alone or in combination with multi-allergen oral immunotherapy (OIT) will help people with multiple food allergies eat foods to which they are allergic. Oral means that you will take the food allergen (peanut and 2 other foods to which you are allergic) by mouth. If you are allergic to more than 3 foods, this study will only provide OIT for peanut and 2 other foods. There are 3 stages to the study: In Stage 1, investigators would like to learn: • If omalizumab stops or decreases allergic reactions to peanut and other common food allergens after taking it for a length of time. Stage 1 will also have an extra part so that 60 participants will receive omalizumab and everyone (the investigators conducting the research and study participants) will know it. This is why it is called the open label extension. This part of the study will assist investigators in learning if receiving omalizumab for a longer time may work better at decreasing allergic reactions. In Stage 2, investigators would like to learn: • How a short course of omalizumab combined with Multi-allergen OIT compares with a longer course of omalizumab in decreasing allergic reactions. In Stage 3, investigators would like to learn: • If, after participants stop both treatments, will they be able to eat the peanut and the 2 other foods in the form that is normally eaten. In all stages, investigators would like to learn:
- - How safe and effective the treatments are and - How the OIT affects the immune system.
