Food Allergy Research and Clinical Trials

The University of Chicago team focuses on developing new methods for the prevention and treatment of food allergy.  We are particularly interested in better understanding how probiotics (good bacteria in our gut) and prebiotics (a diet high in fibrous fruits and vegetables and low in sugar) influence food allergy, and use these observations to develop new therapies.

Current Clinical Trials

As a Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) Center of Excellence, the University of Chicago Medicine offers a variety of clinical trials and is helping to develop a national food allergy patient registry.

The Office of Clinical Trials regularly updates their database to include the most current research trials available. Please check back frequently.

Announcements regarding current clinical trials may also be found at the University of Chicago Allergy/Immunology Program Facebook page.
