Hi all, we have a friend whose daughter is going to be part of the study.... Here!
Is anyone else enrolled? I didn't even know testing was underway in Canada. Would be interested to hear your thoughts and also weather you have seen any of the results from the studies/practices in France?

That's exciting that there are skin patch studies going on here in Canada. I heard about the possibility at the 2011 Anaphylaxis Canada conference in Toronto. There was also mention of milk patch studies at the conference. How did your friend find out about the study?

the study is a year long and i assume it will be followed by analysis... still it feels like one step closer!

Hi
So, our friends found out about the trial from their allergist. Apparently the trial is underway in Toronto (they are participating in Mississauga) and also Ottawa and may still be accepting participants.

Not sure I can/should post the allergist's name here (will try to call to see....)

Still, here's hoping - at least it is a step.
