Palforzia

Schedule an Appointment

Avoidance is no longer the only answer when a food allergy is diagnosed. You now have the option to take control of food allergies with treatment options like oral immunotherapy (OIT), which can protect against accidental exposures to food allergens, and may improve quality of life. Research has proven OIT to not only be safe but also approximately 85% effective when performed under the care of a clinician that specializes in food allergy treatment. We offer OIT for single and multiple allergies for adults and children as young as 1 year. OIT with Xolair is also available to our patients over 4 years old.

The Palforzia protocol begins with a minute initial dose. Each dose is mixed with food such as applesauce or pudding. If these doses are tolerated, your child can continue on to the next step in a series of updoses that typically last 6 months. The updose visits occur every two weeks. To maintain this level of protection to peanut, your child will need to continue taking Palforzia every day — called the maintenance dose. Please see our FAQs for more questions on OIT or call us to learn more about Palfozia.
