Abstract

Treatment of immunoglobulin E–mediated food allergy has traditionally been limited to allergen avoidance and emergency treatment after accidental ingestion. In recent years, significant progress has been made with oral, sublingual, and epicutaneous immunotherapy in the treatment of food allergy; however, these emerging treatment options have important limitations in efficacy, durability of effect, and safety. These limitations have already spurred interest in the development of adjuvant therapies to increase efficacy, produce more durable immunologic changes, and/or reduce treatment-related adverse reactions.
