Understanding and Diagnosing Allergic Disease in Twins
The purpose of this study is to gain better understanding of how the immune system works in twins with and without allergic disease. Healthy volunteers are not specifically targeted. Healthy non-allergic study participants may be found through the course of evaluation for the presence of allergies.Now accepting new patients
Efficacy and Safety of Several Doses of Viaskin Peanut in Adults and Children With Peanut Allergy
The objectives of this dose-finding study for the treatment of peanut allergy are:
- To determine the efficacy of 3 doses of Viaskin Peanut (50 mcg ,100 mcg and 250 mcg peanut protein per patch) to significantly desensitize peanut-allergic subjects to peanut after 12 months of treatment.
- To evaluate the safety of a long-term treatment with Viaskin Peanut.

Safety Study of Viaskin Peanut to Treat Peanut Allergy
This study evaluates the safety of Viaskin Peanut 250 mcg in the treatment of peanut allergy in children from 4 to 11 years of age. Subjects will receive either Viaskin Peanut 250 mcg or a placebo for a period of 6 months, after which all subjects will be receiving the active treatment up to a period of 3 years under active treatment.Now accepting new patients
Genetic and Environmental Factors in the Response to Influenza Vaccination
The purpose of the study is to investigate and compare the immune responses to influenza vaccination in monozygotic (identical) and dizygotic (fraternal) twins to determine the roles of genetics and environment in the response to flu vaccination.Now accepting new patients
Biomarkers for Post-Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorders in Children
Solid organ transplantation is an important therapeutic option for children with a variety of end stage diseases. However, the same immunosuppressive medications that are required to prevent the child's immune system from attacking and rejecting the transplanted organ can predispose these individuals to developing a very serious cancer that is linked to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).Now accepting new patients
Long Term Open-label Study Evaluating Safety of Diacerein 1% Ointment Topical Formulation in Subjects With Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long term safety and tolerability of Diacerein 1% Ointment for 2 treatment cycles in subjects with EBS that were previously enrolled in studies CCP-020-301 or CCP-020-101.Now accepting new patients
Peanut Reactivity Reduced by Oral Tolerance in an Anti-IgE Clinical Trial
The investigators will perform a double blind, placebo controlled clinical trial with Xolair (omalizumab) at four centers to safely and rapidly desensitize patients with severe peanut allergy. The investigators will determine if pretreatment with anti-IgE mAb (Xolair/omalizumab) can greatly reduce allergic reactions and allow for faster and safer desensitization.

Safety and Efficacy of Diacerein 1% Ointment Topical Formulation Compared to Placebo for Subjects With Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex (EBS)
Epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS) is a rare genetic skin disease characterized by fragility of the skin and mucous membranes resulting in painful blisters and erosions after minor trauma. The simplex form is classified by skin blister development in the basal epidermis. Diacerein 1% Ointment is a topical ointment that is being developed for the treatment of EBS. Diacerein in the topical formulation is hydrolyzed to rhein in the epidermis and dermis following administration. Diacerein and rhein have been shown to inhibit the in vitro and in vivo production and activity of interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and other pro-inflammatory cytokines.The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of Diacerein 1% Ointment to Control Ointment when applied once-daily for 8 weeks in subjects with EBS.Now accepting new patients
Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS)
PANS is an illness that comes on suddenly in children. The full name is Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome. It can cause sudden obsessive-compulsive behaviors. It can also cause children to suddenly restricte their food intake. Researchers want to learn more about children with PANS. They also want to learn more about the illness.
To study some disorders of behavior and emotion that start in childhood.
Children 3 14 years old who have had severe obsessive-compulsive symptoms or food restriction start quickly
Parents will answer questions. The topics include:
Their child s medical history
Their child s physical and mental health
Their family history. The focus will be on neurodevelopmental and psychiatric conditions. A family tree will be drawn.
Participants will have a physical exam.
Participants may take tests on paper or computer. These will focus on thinking, memory, and behavior.
Participants and parents will give a blood sample.
Participants will have magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A strong magnetic field and radio waves take pictures of the brain. Participants will lie on a table that slides in and out of a metal scanner.
Participants may have photos or videos taken.
Participants may have other tests. These may include heart tests, sleep tests, and lumbar puncture.

Immunogenicity of Co-administered Oral Polio Vaccine and Oral Cholera Vaccine
Concomitant administration of multiple vaccines, including live attenuated immunizations, is safe and effective. Some restrictions apply for live vaccines; administering a live-virus vaccine within 4 weeks after administration of another live-virus vaccine can decrease immunogenicity to the second administered vaccine. Thus, it is recommended that live-virus vaccines should be administered the same day or ≥4 weeks apart. Data on co-administration of the currently available whole-cell killed Oral Cholera Vaccine (OCVs) with other oral vaccines, specifically, oral polio vaccines (OPV) is lacking. Although the risk of immunological interference due to co-administration of live vaccines with non-live vaccines is considered small if at all, a theoretical concern of interference has been raised. Given the substantial geographic correlation between polio- and cholera-affected and at-risk areas, which include some of the world's most impoverished and hard-to-reach populations, a strategy of co-administration of OCV with OPV to children targeted to receive OPVs has the potential to optimize the use of limited resources and improve coverage for both vaccines. The manufacturer recommendation for a two-week interval between administration of OPV and OCV precludes an integrated campaign or routine use in which OCV could be co-administered with OPV.Now accepting new patients
