NYU Cat and Milk Allergy

CAT ALLERGY: A multi-center randomized clinical trial of a new drug for people 12 years and older who live with a cat [ Identifier: NCT04981717]. REGN1908 and REGN1909 are human IgG4 monoclonal antibodies, which bind independently, non-competitively, and with high affinity to the Fel d 1 allergen and have been developed as an antibody cocktail (REGN1908-1909) for the treatment of allergic symptoms triggered by exposure to cat allergen.

The participants will be compensated for their time and effort and provided allergy medications (intranasal steroid, eye drops and oral antihistamine) free of charge.

If you have any patients who might be interested, please ask them to reach out at or call 212-263-1572.

MILK ALLERGY: Phase 2 Study to Evaluate the Sensitivity, Specificity and Safety of DBV1605, a Ready to Use Atopy Patch Test for the Diagnosis of Non-Immunoglobulin E Mediated Cow’s Milk Allergy in Children >28 days to ≤24 months old [ Identifier: NCT04492683]

The participants will be compensated for their time and effort and provided a supply of a hypoallergenic infant formula free of charge.

If you have any patients who might be interested, please ask them to reach out at or call 212-263-1572.


Research Study on Food Allergy and Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)

Researchers at the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute are seeking adult (18 to 50 years old) volunteers with food allergy to at least one of seven foods (peanut, cashew, hazelnut, walnut, sesame, cod, and/or shrimp) and current eczema or a history of eczema.

The study includes taking a daily oral medicine (abrocitinib) for four months to see if it shows promise for treating food allergy. Abrocitinib is a medication used to treat eczema, but it has not been studied in food allergies. Participants will be compensated $100 for each study visit.

To learn more about this study, please contact or 646-481-4028.

PI: Scott Sicherer, MD; Professor of Pediatrics (Allergy and Immunology), Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. (IRB STUDY-21-00564)


Self-initiated study that is IRB approved(NYMC).

The study is "Sublingual dust mite immunotherapy as a modality for ameliorating hypersensitivity reactions during rush immunotherapy". Patients with rhinitis control assessment test score<18 and prick skin test for DF/DP of at least 5 mm, and who consent will be treated with prescribed Odactra for 3 months and then undergo 2 rush immunotherapy sessions 1 week apart followed by maintenance DF/DP SCIT treatment 4 weeks later. The endpoint will be whether they can tolerate the rush immunotherapy(RIT) and SCIT maintenance initiation without anaphylaxis. Patients referred can follow up their subsequent SCIT with the referring practice/MD.
