AAFA Joins Other Groups to Release Statement on Impact of Government Shutdown on FDA's Review of Food Allergy Treatments

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has joined with the Allergy & Asthma Network, the Center for Science in the Public Interest and Food Allergy Research & Education to issue a statement about the current government shut down and its impact on the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) review of food allergy therapies:

We are hopeful that the government shutdown will end as soon as possible so that the FDA can get back to work reviewing potential food allergy treatments. It is imperative that any potential treatments are processed through the system quickly, as patients' lives are at stake.

Delays of any kind prolong the long wait for a potentially life-saving therapy for peanut allergy. We hope that our leaders can find a way to reach an agreement and let the FDA continue their work.

“Delays of any kind prolong the long wait for a potentially life-saving therapy for peanut allergy.”

Should read for food allergies. Not just specifically for peanut allergy.

Respectfully,
