An Easy-to-Use, Accurate Alternative to the Oral Food Challenge

What we are looking for

Our goal is to create an alternative for OFC that is highly sensitive and specific and has the potential to identify multiple allergens. The optimal assay is easy to use, does not depend on sophisticated instrumentation, and provides clear results that are reproducible.

The Strategy

The multi-pronged approach allows the exploration of several options simultaneously. There will be maximum flexibility to pursue the most promising options, along with head-to-head comparisons and collaboration across multiple research sites. The strategy is results-driven, offering staged investments with future support contingent on progress.

Staged Data-Driven Approach
