Dr. Soteres of Asthma & Allergy Associates invited to Clinical Trial Roundtable
Dr. Soteres of Asthma & Allergy Associates, one of three experts across the country, who were involved in Phase 3 oral immunotherapy (OIT) trials, shared first-hand experiences in implementing a study regimen for investigational food allergen desensitization.
The presentation took place on Saturday, November 17, from 11:35 am to 1:00 pm in Product Theater #2 at the Washington State Convention Center, Level 4, Halls 4ABCDE, in Seattle, Washington.
In this presentation they will discuss logistical consideration for clinical trial participation, and education and support in clinical trials for participants and caregivers.
The incidence and impact of food allergies are increasing. The continual effort required to avoid an exposure that could cause a serious allergic reaction can greatly compromise a patient’s quality of life. Reducing the daily burden of managing food allergies is a matter of urgency for patients their families, advocacy groups, and research teams.
There have been numerous trials using OIT (oral immunotherapy) in patients with food allergies. The goal of OIT is to desensitize patients with food allergies to food allergens by ingesting controlled, increasing amounts of the allergen over a period of time
At the 2018 ACAAI conference, Aimmune is sponsoring a presentation theater featuring a roundtable discussion with a moderator and 3 panelists. The roundtable will offer allergists who participated in the largest randomized, blinded, controlled clinical trial (to date) with investigational OIT an opportunity to share lessons learned from their experience with the trial.
The following allergists have been identified to participate in the presentation:
Moderator: David Brown, MD
• Dareen Siri, MD (Community physician)
• Daniel Soteres, MD (Community physician)
• B.J. Lanser, MD, MPH (Academic)
Note: Dr. Siri and Dr. Sotores currently offer OIT in their practices in addition to being investigators in food allergy clinical trials.
