How to Participate: For more information, call: (650)521-7237 and/or email: snpallergy@stanford.edu

Who Can Participate: Anyone between the ages of 1-55 years who has a peanut allergy and at least two other food allergies to milk, egg, wheat, cashew, hazelnut or walnut.

Gender: Any

Compensation: Provided

Study Sponsor: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)

Site Principal Investigator: Dr. Sharon Chinthrajah

Study Coordinator: Julie Ye

Study Primary Investigator:  Robert Wood, MD

MOTIF Shrimp Allergy Study

Condition: Shrimp allergy

Age Group: 7-55 y/o

Duration: 58 weeks

Description: The purpose of this study is to learn how the shrimp food allergen affects the immune system and whether analyzing immune cells over time will help us predict if allergies will come back. The study will last 58 weeks and involve 21 clinic visits. Clinic visits include, but are not limited to, a physical examination, blood tests, lung function test, skin prick test, and food challenges. Eligible participants will receive treatment, study-related procedures, and exams at no cost.

Contact: If you are interested in learning more about the study or scheduling a pre-screening visit, you can contact the study coordinator Gabriella Landes, at snpallergy@stanford.edu or call us at (650)521-7237.

MAGIC

Study Objectives & Details: The goal of the clinical trial is to explore whether adding Dupilumab to OIT will enhance the safety and efficacy of OIT in patients with a milk allergy.

How to Participate: For more information, call: (650)521-7237 and/or email: snpallergy@stanford.edu

Who Can Participate: 

  • Male or female between 4-50 years of age
  • Diagnosed allergy to cow's milk or milk-containing product
  • If allergic to multiple foods, the participant must eliminate the known food allergens, including milk, from his/her diet so as not to confound the data of the study
  • Willing to comply with the study protocol
  • Willing to participate in all study procedures

 

Our Center will go over additional inclusion and exclusion criteria with participants at the time of screening.

 

SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination Study

Are you interested in getting vaccinated against COVID-19?
We are looking for volunteers for a COVID-19 vaccine research study.

The Systemic Allergic Reactions to SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination study is recruiting volunteers to receive one of the two mRNA vaccines - Pfizer BioNtech COVID-19 Vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. These are the same vaccines that have received emergency use authorization by the FDA and are being used at public vaccination sites.

You may qualify if you are 18-69 years of age and:
You have a history of Severe Allergies, OR
You have been diagnosed with a Mast Cell Disorder, OR
You have a history of No Allergies.

We are doing this trial because some people (about 2 to 10 out of every million people vaccinated) have had severe allergic reactions to these vaccines. This reaction is called anaphylaxis.

SUNBEAM

Your new family can help us learn how about the progression of allergic diseases!

We hope to learn how environmental and genetic factors play a role in food allergy and eczema development.

To Participate in this study you must:

  • Be a Pregnant Mother at any point during your pregnancy and willing to enroll your child at birth
  • Participation for you and your child lasts until your child is three years old
  • Biological Fathers may also participate, but their participation is not required
     

Participation will involve:

  • Clinic visits several times over three years to monitor the development of allergies
  • Sample collection (blood, urine, hair, stool, skin tapes and swabs, saliva, cord blood and nasal swabs; mother only: vaginal swabs and breast milk)
  • Questionnaires related to your child’s health, diet, and environment
