There are many ways in which TIP differs from traditional OIT (Oral Immunotherapy). Three primary differences are:
- Foundation: TIP is based on diagnostics and data analytics leading to a precision medicine approach to treatment. Each child’s data determines their unique treatment plan.
- Methodology: TIP utilizes a concept we call “protein matching.” This allows us to treat the entire allergic profile.
- Outcome: The goal of TIP is for each patient to achieve true food freedom. Once in remission, TIP patients can tolerate large and infrequent doses of their allergens allowing them to maintain a normal diet without restriction or fear of reaction and can consume unlimited amounts of the foods to which they were once allergic.
