Our Clinical Trials

The Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research at Stanford University conducts many clinical trials with the goal of developing therapies for allergic disorders and asthma.

Currently Recruiting Clinical Trials


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel desensitization method, called EPicutaneous ImmunoTherapy (EPIT) with the Viaskin® Peanut patch in young children between the ages of 1 and 3 years with peanut allergy. The Viaskin® Peanut is an investigational medication using a specially designed patch applied on the skin that contains a dry extract of peanut proteins. The Viaskin® Peanut patch is designed to desensitize a peanut-allergic person. If your child has a diagnosed peanut allergy, but is otherwise healthy and in between the ages of 1 and 3 years, he/she may be eligible to participate. Additional eligibility criteria require that the child is currently following a strict peanut-free diet and that the child has no prior history of any immunotherapy to any food. If your child qualifies for the study, he/she will receive the treatment, study-related procedures and exams at no cost.

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the effect of two different moisturizers on skin that is affected by eczema. The two different skin creams to be used include Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion (which is available over the counter) and EpiCeram (available with prescription only). Both products are FDA approved and are being used according to labeling. This study will only require 3 visits over the course of a week. We are currently recruiting people with atopic dermatitis, ages 0-40.

If you are interested in learning more about the study or scheduling a screening visit, you can contact the study coordinator, Melanie Shojinaga, at mnshojinaga@stanford.edu.

EoE Treet

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of a study drug delivered via injection given weekly or every other week, in subjects with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE). There are 3 parts to this study, Part A, Part B, and Part C. Subjects will participate in either Part A or Part B, and in Part C. Everyone in Part C will receive the study drug. Your participation in this study may last up to 18 months. If you agree to participate in this study, you will come in to the clinic for approximately 20 scheduled visits. We are currently recruiting 12 year olds or older with EoE.

If you are interested in learning more about the study or scheduling a screening visit, you can contact the study coordinator Melanie Shojinaga at mnshojinaga@stanford.edu.
