Therapy for food allergy - Twitter summary from #ACAAI16 meeting

Dr Nadeau presented review of new immunotherapy for treating food allergy. Potential food allergy therapies in this slide: https://t.co/N00tHOvHIh

AR101 - 100% of patients tolerated 443g (2 peanuts) and 78% tolerated the challenge (equivalent to 1g or a peanut butter cookie) https://t.co/3QYxFVtOBO

Possible biologics for peanut allergy in this slide: https://t.co/GkO3TStDge

There is evidence the prevalence of peanut #allergy is not on the rise from comparison of longitudinal cohorts https://t.co/Ds28rZ83Cm

LEAP study: Peanut recommended to be introduced starting around 4-6 months https://t.co/ccs9HulMbz

Guidelines for peanut introduction changing. Introduce early, test if indicated. https://t.co/6MkSc8VE8Q

Peanut allergy guideline coming out Jan 2017 https://t.co/ccOjJbOyvm

However, does LEAP study applies to other foods? Early egg introduction has mixed evidence, trend towards benefit in non-eczema group but towards harm in eczema group. Very mixed picture when it comes to using hydrolyzed formula vs cow's milk formula in eczema. No clear benefit.

Several allergists did a great job posting updates on Twitter from the 2016 meeting of ACAAI, the hashtag was #ACAAI16. I used the website Symplur to review the tweets:
