Oral Immunotherapy for Food-Allergic Children: A Pro-Con Debate
TLDR
Pediatric OIT remains a controversial therapy and no definitive generalized conclusion may be drawn so far, but it should be an option provided by specialized teams, when both patients and their families are prone to adhere to the proposed protocol.

Next-Generation Approaches for the Treatment of Food Allergy
TLDR
A review of novel approaches to the treatment of food allergy that are currently under investigation, including the use of SLIT, modified proteins, probiotics, Chinese herbal supplements, biologic therapies, and DNA vaccines.
Peanut Oral Immunotherapy: a Current Perspective
TLDR
The latest research suggests that peanut OIT could be a promising option for peanut-allergic patients, with the majority of participants in research studies achieving the primary efficacy endpoint of desensitization, as well as sustained unresponsiveness in select populations.
Doctor, can I desensitize my food-allergic child using directly the allergenic molecules?
TLDR
Many molecules, including allergenic peptides or modified proteins are under consideration but clinical trials in food-allergic study participants are necessary to confirm tolerability and efficacy.
Oral Immunotherapy (OIT): A Personalized Medicine
TLDR
Oral Immunotherapy, a promising allergen-specific approach in the management of Food Allergies (FA), is based on the administration of increasing doses of the culprit food until reaching a maintenance dose, and should be considered an individualized treatment.
The Basophil Activation Test for Clinical Management of Food Allergies: Recent Advances and Future Directions
TLDR
The current data regarding the application of the BAT in food allergy (FA) for cow’s milk, egg and peanut, being the most common causes of FA in children are summarized.

TLDR
Omalizumab used in conjunction with immunotherapy has shown promising results, especially in the reduction of adverse reactions, but larger, randomized, placebo‐controlled trials are needed to better identify those patients who would benefit the most from the addition of omalIZumab to immunotherapy, as well as optimal dosing strategies and duration of treatment.
Targeting the FcεRI Pathway as a Potential Strategy to Prevent Food-Induced Anaphylaxis
TLDR
Several novel therapies show promise for the prevention of food-induced anaphylaxis through targeting of the high-affinity IgE receptor (FcϵRI) pathway, including tyrosine kinases and the receptor itself.

Allergen-specific oral immunotherapy for peanut allergy.
TLDR
Allergen-specific oral immunotherapy for peanut allergy aims to induce desensitisation and then tolerance to peanut, and has the potential to revolutionise the management of peanut allergy, but at present there is still considerable uncertainty about the effectiveness and safety of this approach.
Clinical Studies in Oral Allergen-Specific Immunotherapy: Differences among Allergens
TLDR
According to the data, OIT combined with omalizumab increased the threshold doses of food without adverse reactions and may be of benefit in food allergy treatment.
Oral Immunotherapy for Treatment of Egg Allergy in Children
TLDR
To determine that oral immunotherapy (OIT) to egg is safe and effective to desensitize patients and induce sustained unresponsiveness, a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled study of 55 children, sensitive to egg, is conducted.
Food allergy
Opinion statementAlthough many emerging therapies demonstrate theoretical and practical promise, strict elimination of the allergenic food remains the only proven therapy for food hypersensitivity.
Safety and feasibility of oral immunotherapy to multiple allergens for food allergy
TLDR
Preliminary data show oral immunotherapy using multiple food allergens simultaneously to be feasible and relatively safe when performed in a hospital setting with trained personnel.
