Re: Treatment Hope for Those with Multiple Food Allergies

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.

Whenever I want to check to see who is doing what in research, I look at www.clinicaltrials.gov Putting in food allergies yields 374 results - that includes studies that are not yet recruiting and those that are done.. https://www.clinicaltrials.gov...es&Search=Search I am not sure about regular clinic settings - I just reread your question.

Re: Q&A: What Does Omalizumab Mean for Oral Immunotherapy Treatment for Multiple Food Allergies?

APV ·
It must be clarified that OIT is not a cure. It is changing the disease state. IgE is naturally involved in helminth defense (worm infections). A "low intensity" worm infection is IgE dominated. This is equivalent to food allergy. A "high intensity" worm infection is IgG4 dominated (high IgG4/IgE) ratio. This is equivalent to a person with food allergy who has received OIT. In food allergy, your immune system has been programmed to recognize food items as worms. So continued food allergen...

Re: Q&A: What Does Omalizumab Mean for Oral Immunotherapy Treatment for Multiple Food Allergies?

APV ·
Omalizumab is manufactured using Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and is therefore contaminated with numerous CHO proteins. It is well documented that patients start developing anti-drug antibodies (ADA) against monoclonal antibody treatments such as omalizumab. This can result in drug ineffectiveness. More worrisome is antibodies created against CHO. It is well known from cancer research that immunization with homologous xenogeneic proteins (injection of animal proteins like CHO, that...

Re: Study Shows It May Be Possible to Eat Peanut Regularly Years After OIT

ColoradoCarol ·
Articles about OIT in the news has been the bane of my existence. Every single new person I meet and tell about my son’s food allergies brings up OIT like I’ve never heard of it. And they dismiss his allergies like if I would just do OIT for him, he would be magically cured. Implication is that I’m either an idiot or a bad mom. As you all know, there are a lot of caveats with these studies. And OIT is nowhere near ready for prime time, as in everyone being able to do it or be cured by it. My...

Carol, you're certainly NOT a bad mom ... and so very far from being an idiot! Not every treatment for ANY disorder, including food allergies, is right for every person. Each family has to figure out the benefits and risks that are unique to their own situation. You're being careful and doing your due diligence and making the best decisions for your family.
