The staff at Sarasota Clinical Research, the research arm of Windom Allergy, has been working with the first two companies developing FDA approved products for treating peanut allergy.
We have enrolled patients in the peanut flour capsule study that uses these proprietary capsules in an OIT format and the peanut patch study that introduces small amounts of peanut protein into the skin from a transdermal patch worn on the back.
These products should come to the market in 2019, if not a little before.
The doctors at the Food Allergy Center of Florida are founding members of the non-profit medical organization, Food Allergy Support Team.
This group of US and Canadian doctors are working to develop the best standards of OIT practice and helping to educate other allergists interested in providing this treatment for their patients.
