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.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
This is a 52-week, Phase 3 multi-center, randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled study to assess the safety and clinical efficacy of two dosing regimens of ligelizumab (240 mg and 120 mg) subcutaneous injection every 4 weeks (SCq4w) in participants with a medically confirmed diagnosis of IgE-mediated peanut allergy. Participants will be randomized to ligelizumab 240 mg, ligelizumab 120 mg, or placebo (5 treatment arms, randomization ratio of 2:2:2:2:1) for the double-blind placebo-controlled treatment period (up to Week 12). Participants initially assigned to the 8-week placebo arms will receive the first dose of blinded ligelizumab treatment at the Week 8 visit. Participants initially assigned to the 16-week placebo arm will receive the last dose of placebo before the double blind placebo controlled food challenge (DBPCFC) at week 12 and the first dose of blinded ligelizumab treatment at the Week 16 visit.
Experimental: ligelizumab 240 mg
ligelizumab 240 mg subcutaneous injection for 52 weeks
Experimental: ligelizumab 120 mg
ligelizumab 120 mg subcutaneous injection for 52 weeks
Experimental: Placebo 8 weeks and ligelizumab 120 mg
Placebo subcutaneous injection for first 8 weeks and ligelizumab 120 mg subcutaneous injection for 44 weeks
Experimental: Placebo 16 weeks and ligelizumab 120 mg/240 mg
Placebo subcutaneous injection for first 16 weeks and ligelizumab 120 mg OR 240 mg subcutaneous injection for 36 weeks
Experimental: Placebo 8 weeks and ligelizumab 240 mg
Placebo subcutaneous injection for first 8 weeks and ligelizumab 240 mg subcutaneous injection for 44 weeks
