PMID:  22244237     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Despite increased consumer interest in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for the treatment of food allergy, there remains a relative paucity of knowledge regarding the clinical efficacy, mechanisms of action, and safety of most CAM treatments available to consumers. This article focuses on recent advances in CAM for food allergy, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, probiotics, and alternative approaches to allergen immunotherapy. The mechanism of action of several novel approaches to treatment of food allergy is reviewed, but FAHF-2 is the only investigational herbal formulation currently validated for use in human clinical trials.
