Food-Specific and Component IgE Threshold Levels That Predict Food Allergy in People With Elevated Total Serum IgE Levels and Atopic Dermatitis

Background: Atopic dermatitis (AD), also called eczema, makes skin dry, red, and itchy. People with AD are more likely to get a food allergy than people without AD. But some food allergy tests are not always accurate in people with AD. Researchers want to study if people are truly allergic to milk and/or peanuts. Objectives: To improve the ways doctors test for food allergy in people with AD. Eligibility: People ages 3 21 who have had AD; have a high total IgE level (an allergic antibody); might have a milk and/or peanut allergy; and are currently enrolled in another NIH study Design: Participants will be screened under another protocol. Participants will have a physical exam, blood tests, and medical history. Participants will breathe into a plastic device that measures lung strength. Participants may get a small plastic tube inserted in their arm. Participants who have not had an allergic reaction to food in the past 3 years will do 1 or more oral food challenge (OFCs) depending on their allergies. They will eat a little bit of the food they might be allergic to. They will be watched for a reaction. If they have one, they will know for sure they are allergic. They may keep eating bigger portions of the food until they either have a reaction or finish all the food. In some OFCs, participants will get a placebo food. OFCs will last a few hours or 2 days. Participants will repeat all tests at each OFC. Participation can last up to 12 months. ...

Oral Low Doses Tolerance INduction Study for Peanuts

Several protocols have been proposed in scientifis literature, for oral tolerance induction (OIT) protocols for peanuts. A meta-analysis showed that the data in the literature are rather in favor of the exclusion of peanuts, and that OIT doesn't allow to expect significant levels of peanut protein consumed by the patient, and is associated with an increased risk of anaphylaxis and epinephrine use. Also, in most published protocols, patients with a history of anaphylactic shock, severe asthma, or multiple history of anaphylaxis are excluded. To date, no protocol has been validated for this type of treatment, and each center follows locally validated schemes. In our unit, the investigators use an OIT protocol that starts at low doses (first dose at 2.68 mg peanut protein) and doses increase is scheduled every 4 to 12 weeks (instead of every 2 weeks). The investigators do not exclude patients with asthma or those with a history of peanut anaphylaxis (grade 2 or 3). The investigators have noted that our protocol is associated with a good safety profile and good efficacy, probably due to the fact that the investigators start at low doses and increase the dose with a prolonged delay, compared to previously published protocols. For this reason, the investigators decided to evaluate the results the investigators obtained in our patients and to better analyze the efficacy and safety profile of our protocol.

Study in Pediatric Subjects With Peanut Allergy to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of Dupilumab as Adjunct to AR101 (Peanut Oral Immunotherapy)

Primary objective is to assess whether dupilumab as adjunct to AR101 compared to placebo improves desensitization at the completion of up-dosing, defined as an increase in the proportion of participants who pass a post up-dosing double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge (DBPCFC) at visit 16. Secondary objectives are: To assess whether dupilumab as adjunct to AR101 compared to placebo improves desensitization at the completion of up-dosing, defined as an increase in the cumulative tolerated dose (log transformed) of peanut protein during a post up-dosing DBPCFC at visit 16 To assess whether dupilumab as (indefinite [continuously]) adjunct to AR101 compared to placebo maintains desensitization, defined as an increase in the proportion of participants who pass a post maintenance DBPCFC at visit 22 To assess whether dupilumab as (limited [previously]) adjunct to AR101 compared to placebo maintains desensitization, defined as an increase in the proportion of participants who pass a post maintenance DBPCFC at visit 22 To evaluate the safety and tolerability of dupilumab as adjunct to AR101 compared to placebo To assess the effect of dupilumab (compared to placebo) as adjunct to AR101 on the change in peanut-specific Immunoglobulin E (sIgE), Immunoglobulin G (IgG), Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4), and peanut-specific IgG4/IgE ratio To assess if dupilumab increases the tolerability of AR101 as measured by the daily symptoms (electronic diary [e-diary]) during the up-dosing phase
