ORAL IMMUNOTHERAPY FOR FOOD ALLERGY

WHAT IS OIT?
Food Allergy Oral immunotherapy (OIT) refers to the medically supervised therapy of feeding an allergic individual an increasing amount of an allergen with the goal of increasing the threshold that triggers a reaction.

The goal of therapy is to raise the threshold that may trigger a reaction and provide the allergic individual protection against accidental ingestion of the allergen. OIT is not a curative therapy and involves a long-term commitment over several months to years and possibly indefinitely. Individuals who receive OIT will continue to carry epinephrine, read labels closely, etc., and it is not expected that OIT will lead to ingestion of the allergen without limitation. (Definition from AAAAI.)

Find out more about The Current State of Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) for the Treatment of Food Allergy from the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology.

 Remember, OIT treatment should only be performed under the supervision of a board-certified allergist.
