Food allergy reactions are of increasing concern in the United States. About one fourth of all American households face restrictions in their diet due to a family member suffering from food allergies. Children appear particularly susceptible when dissecting the age group of peanut butter and cow milk allergic individuals. Research led by Children’s investigator Edda Fiebiger, PhD, hopes to define new strategies for diagnosis and treatment of children with allergic colitis and other food allergies.
