MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — SpoonfulOne, a food allergy protection company, is launching a first-of-its-kind digital, randomized, controlled trial with the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) to evaluate the ability to protect against food allergies with routine feeding of the most common food allergy proteins during infancy and toddlerhood. The trial is expected to begin in December with the recruitment of 1,500 healthy babies between four to six months of age. Study parameters will support new feeding guidelines recommending the early introduction of potential food allergens for food allergy prevention, glean parental experiences of early introduction in infant feeding, and support the evidence showing SpoonfulOne as the category-leading solution for food allergy prevention.
The study will be led by Principal Investigator, pediatric allergist, David Jeong, MD, and co-investigated by DCRI’s Christoph Hornik, MD, PhD, MPH, who specializes in neonatal and infant therapeutics. In addition,
