Drugs and Important Biological Agents (IBA) related to Food Hypersensitivity:
1. Immunoglobulin E (IgE)IBA
2. AllergensIBA
09/01/2009 - "This review is dedicated to summarizing current knowledge about the most important food allergen protein families and to presenting data from the EuroPrevall allergen library, a proof-of-concept collection of highly purified, characterized and authenticated food allergens from animal and plant food sources to facilitate improved diagnosis of food allergies."
01/01/2013 - "This paper will discuss the use of animal models for the investigation of the major food allergens; cow's milk, hen's egg, and peanut/other tree nuts, highlight the distinguishing features of each of these models, and provide an overview of how the results from these trials have improved our understanding of these specific allergens and food allergy in general."
10/01/2015 - "FAHF-2 is a safe herbal medication for subjects with food allergy and shows favorable in vitro immunomodulatory effects; however, efficacy for improving tolerance to food allergens is not demonstrated at the dose and duration used."
02/01/2005 - "Results classified subjects into four groups according to the clinical history and prick-tests to common inhalants: group 1: subjects suspected of having a food allergy; group 2: subjects with ongoing atopic disease; group 3: subjects with an underlying predisposition to atopy, as showed by one or more positive results to prick-tests with airborne allergens; group 4: non atopic subjects. "
10/01/2009 - "However, with the improved understanding of tolerance and advances in characterization of food allergens, several therapeutic strategies have been developed and are currently being investigated as potential treatments and/or cures for food allergy."
