I imagine this post will be shared with many relatives and friends. Thank you for posting the most recent research here! (my first question was, "does this mean people should run out and try this combined therapy?" and my second was, "Hmm. I have a small child and I wonder what the side effects of this drug would be on her physical, neurological, and hormonal development if she did this.." Thanks again for all your work here, I absolutely love and trust this site!

I understand that Xolair is experimental for children with food allergies and only for kids 12 and up. But it is my understanding that OIT and SLIT is being done in regular clinic settings and not just in clinical trials . Is the any hospital/ clinic in the country that is doing OIT or SLIT for children with fish allergies? I have seen it only for nuts, milk and eggs. Thanks for any information you have.
