Unique to SoCal Food Allergy, the molecular testing done at our organization allows us to understand the relationship between your child’s immune system and the proteins in classes of specific allergens. 80-85% of plants on earth share the same 25 classes of proteins. Identifying both the largest and smallest classes within those has led to a concept which we refer to as protein matching. Protein matching allows our patients to introduce similar proteins to their immune system in order to prepare the system for the consumption of an allergen. With specific, regular exposure to these proteins, we are able to induce tolerance through large and infrequent doses.
