Additional Allergy Research Studies Being Conducted by the ITN
LEAP demonstrated that consumption of a peanut-containing snack by infants who are at high-risk for developing peanut allergy prevents subsequent development of allergy. A follow-up study, LEAP-ON, found that the peanut allergy prevention achieved in the LEAP study persists after a one year period of avoiding peanut.
IMPACT is a clinical research study testing whether daily oral exposure to a peanut product can modify peanut allergy in young children.
A clinical research study testing whether giving cat allergy shots combined with an experimental medication will work better in treating allergic symptoms to cat.
This study is testing the effectiveness of two commercially available tolerance-increasing treatments for hay fever to induce long-term tolerance.
