Historically, there has not been a Food and Drug Administration – approved medical therapy to treat food allergies. This is about to change with emerging research in immune desensitization and clinical trials with food immunotherapy products that will likely soon hit the market. In today’s episode, we will talk about these clinical trials, what two products are likely to be FDA-approved by the end of 2019 and what that means for your food-allergic patients.
Today’s guests are David Fleischer, MD and Matthew Greenhawt, MD. Dr. Fleischer is Director of the Allergy and Immunology Center at Children’s Hospital Colorado and Associate Professor in Pediatrics and Allergy at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Dr. Greenhawt is Director of the Food Challenge and Research Unit at Children’s Hospital Colorado Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Allergy at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
