Introduction to Food Allergy Treatments
Researchers are investigating exciting new ways to stop food allergy reactions or limit reaction symptoms. Most of the therapies now being studied are allergen-specific, treating individual food allergies with products made from the individual problem food(s). Allergen non-specific therapies are also in development that could be used to treat any individual food allergy or combination of food allergies. Progress is being made to develop both these types of therapies, and both of these approaches may someday be combined to create more effective, better-tolerated treatments.
