Food Allergy Research & Education Launches Clinical Trial Finder for Food Allergy

Quote:
Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), the nation’s leading food allergy advocacy organization, is pleased to announce today the launch of the FARE Clinical Trial Finder, which simplifies the search for clinical trials that are critical to the discovery of new therapies for food allergy, a potentially life-threatening disease.
FARE’s website will host the new online tool at trials.foodallergy.org.

Families and adults managing food allergies who are interested in joining a food allergy research study can visit the website, which draws data from the U.S. National Library of Medicine’s worldwide clinicaltrials.gov database, to search for trials in their area.

Compared to the clinicaltrials.gov search engine, the FARE Clinical Trial Finder makes it easier to identify relevant clinical trials that are actively recruiting or preparing to recruit participants.
“We have seen a 1,300 percent increase in clinical trials for new therapies since 2011, which is a remarkable testament to the progress that has been made in food allergy research in recent years,” said Mary Jane Marchisotto, SVP of Research at FARE. “One way to speed the development of new treatments is to connect people who are interested in participating in a clinical trial with researchers who are conducting these studies across the country. At FARE we are often asked about trials that are recruiting for volunteers, and we are pleased to provide an easy way for patients to explore opportunities to participate in groundbreaking research.”

As a new tool linking volunteers and researchers, the FARE Clinical Trial Finder builds on the work of the FARE Patient Registry, whose members can track their food allergy reactions and anonymously share their clinical data with the research community. In just one year, the FARE Patient Registry has enrolled more than 5,000 food allergy patients. As more individuals take part in the registry, the increasing power of the registry data set can help researchers characterize the extent of the food allergy problem and define different forms of this complex disease.
