No. TIP is not a clinical trial. TIP is a precision-medicine approach to treating food allergies – this means that every child in our program receives an entirely unique form of therapy. This is distinctly different from a clinical trial where a single method of study (i.e. treatment or protocol) is applied equally to all involved patients.
TIP is a long-term treatment, cohort research model. The SoCal Food Allergy facilities house a PhD research team and a basic science laboratory that studies blood and immune cells to better understand how we can safely speed up the treatment process. Our model actively treats children with food allergies today, while providing our research team with the data to advance even further the food allergy treatment cause for all children.
