National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Comments Sought: Food Allergy Guidelines Update, April 18, 2016
Public Comment on Addendum Guidelines to Prevent Peanut Allergy
NIAID is seeking public comment on a draft update to the Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy in the United States to address the prevention of peanut allergy. The update was prompted by findings from the NIAID-funded LEAP study, which showed that introducing peanut-containing foods to infants at high risk for peanut allergy substantially reduced subsequent development of the allergy.
The public comment period begins March 4, 2016 and will remain open for 45 days, ending April 18, 2016.
