- Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome - FPIES (ages 6 months-21 years)
The purpose of this study is to describe the course of food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), a specific type of food allergy that results in severe vomiting, to find out when and how FPIES is outgrown. We also hope to determine if laboratory tests can be d...
- Anaphylaxis Therapies (ages 0-17 years)
With this study, we hope to learn more about the use of auto-injectable epinephrine (TwinJect®/EpiPen®). We are trying to find out which patients may require more than one dose of epinephrine for an allergic reaction to food, and why they may need an additional dose.
