Abstract

Treatment of IgE-mediated food allergies is limited to allergen avoidance and emergency treatment on accidental ingestion, which is not uncommon. In recent years, interest in interventional therapies to treat food allergy has increased significantly. Although oral, sublingual, and epicutaneous immunotherapy have shown promise in studies, none is approved as therapy for food allergy to date and questions remain regarding efficacy, safety, dosing, and duration of therapy.
