We have developed a Food Allergy Herbal Formula (FAHF-2) derived from traditional Chinese medicine formula and showed it is safe and effective in a mouse model of peanut allergy. Based on our study in humans, FAHF-2 appears to be safe and well-tolerated for the treatment of food allergy. We will investigate how FAHF-2 affects the immune system to protect it from anaphylaxis, focusing on the effects of FAHF-2 on specific IgE and IgG levels and basophils.
