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.Kari Nadeau, MD, PhDLearn More »

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
desensit…Learn More »
