"Contribute to a better understanding and diagnosis of food allergies!"
Age: children and adults
Keywords: Food allergy, Cashews, Shrimp, Allergy Diagnosis, Allergy Severity
Type: Translational Allergy Research
We hope to learn more about which allergy cells in your body can improve diagnosis and which cells can help predict how serious/persistent an allergy is likely going to be.

If you are allergic or have a suspected allergy to cashew or shrimp you may be eligible to take part in this prescreening research visit.

This pre-screening visit is a part of the prescreening protocol and will test if you are allergic or not to cashews and shrimp. Currently, the gold standard for diagnosing a food allergy is an oral food challenge. At our center, thanks to the participation of about a thousand trial volunteers, we have developed the expertise to perform procedures like these in a safe and controlled environment. Additional procedures may include a prescreening skin prick test and blood draw.

The Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University aims to discover underlying immune mechanisms behind allergies to develop a lasting cure.
This study requires

This prescreening visit may require 1-2 study visits. This protocol is for prescreening purposes only and does not guarantee enrollment into a clinical trial.

Who can participate
  • Children and Adults
  • Suspected allergy to cashew or shrimp
Benefits and risks of participating
Your participation may contribute to advancing the knowledge of the allergic disease and the human immune system. The results from the procedures performed in this study may be used to determine if you are eligible for research studies conducted at the Sean N. Parker Center.

This research visit is for prescreening purposes only and does not guarantee enrollment into a clinical trial.
