Fish allergy often presents early in life and persists life-long, of which one in ten of them will develop life-threatening allergic reactions. Allergic reactions that may occur with accidental exposure to fish is common and the quality of life of fish-allergic patients and families are impacted by this life-long, debilitating condition which has no effective treatment at the moment.
Recently, researchers have reported success in desensitizing food-allergic patients with oral immunotherapy (OIT), using peanut allergy as the prototype. In a proportion of individuals receiving OIT, sustained unresponsiveness, i.e., long-term tolerance, can be achieved at the end of the study treatment and up until 4 years after treatment.
Fish oral immunotherapy (Fish OIT) is a treatment where a person who is allergic to fish is asked to eat fish, starting at very low doses then increasing to a higher maintenance dose and continuing on the maintenance dose for a certain period of time.
The participants may:
✓ have their fish allergy treated
✓ have a reduced risk of life-threatening reactions to fish
✓ help test a possible new treatment for fish allergy
✓ benefit other children with fish allergy
✓ improve the quality of life for people with fish allergy
