"Diagnosis of Food Allergies" Video is Now Available
February 22, 2023 (McLean, VA) – FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), the nation’s leading non-profit organization engaged in food allergy advocacy, and the largest private funder of food allergy research, is proud to announce the release of “Diagnosis of Food Allergies,” a 40-minute video produced by FARE that offers in-depth presentations on how to recognize different types of adverse reactions to food and seek a medical diagnosis.
Introduced by Bruce Roberts, PhD, Chief Research Strategy and Innovation Officer for FARE, the video presentation features Amanda L Cox, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Allergy and Immunology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and Satya Shanmugham Director of Program Management at FARE and Manager of FARE’s Innovation Award Diagnostic Challenge Program.
The goal of the video is to increase awareness and recognition of adverse reaction to food while highlighting the need for innovation in diagnostic methods for food allergies and adverse food reactions more broadly. The first half of the presentation introduces food reactions that include the IgE-mediated food allergies that can cause life-threatening reactions, several types of non-IgE-mediated food allergies, and food intolerances. The second half describes diagnostic methods that are in use today as well as new diagnostic approaches that are under investigation.
