Here’s why and how the NACE is working to centralise food allergy research and translation of evidence into practice.
- There is no available treatment for food allergies and management relies on strict avoidance of allergens.
- In 2011, one in 10 Australian infants had a food allergy.
- Hospital admissions due to severe and life-threating allergic reactions, known as anaphylaxis, are increasing.
More evidence on safety, efficacy and long-term outcomes is urgently needed before emerging therapies are implemented into practice. One of our priorities is to establish a National Allergy Clinical Trials Network to support national, multi-site allergy trials that are embedded in routine clinical care. This will help ensure every Australian with food allergy has access to the best available treatments.
