UPDATE from Anaphylaxis Canada, sent Mar 9/07:

Dear Registrant,

In June of 2006, we advised you of a study being conducted at the McGill University Health Centre in Montreal. The study has been amended to now include allergic individuals up to 25 years of age and participants are still being recruited. We are forwarding the research teams call for participants below.

Please direct all inquiries to the study coordinator and forward this message on to others who may be interested. We encourage you to consult with your own allergist if you have questions about your childs specific situation.

For your information,

Anaphylaxis Canada


Peanut Registry (database) for children and young adults in Canada

Our research team, led by Dr. Ann Clarke of the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the Montreal General Hospital, McGill University Health Centre, Dr. Reza Alizadehfar of the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the Montreal Children's Hospital, McGill University Health Centre and Dr. Rhoda Kagan at the North York General Hospital, Toronto, is interested in learning more about how peanut allergy affects your child or you (if you are under 25 years of age). We wish to invite you to participate in a research study that we are conducting.

To be eligible, individuals should be:
1. Under 25 years of age AND
2. Diagnosed by a physician as having a peanut allergy.

The purpose of this study is to assemble a database (registry) of information on peanut allergic individuals under the age of 25 in Canada. This information will help the research team learn more about the diagnosis, impact and management of peanut allergy.

If you agree to participate, you will be contacted by a member of our research team by mail once a year to invite you to complete questionnaires. These will take no more than 10 minutes to complete. You will be asked questions about accidental exposures to peanut as well as questions about other allergies.

Should you wish to participate in our database and/or require additional information, please contact:
