Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Although diagnostic testing methods for food hypersensitivity have improved over time, both in vivo and in vitro methods are significantly flawed, especially as evidenced by the frequent occurrence of false-positive test results. Because of these limitations, oral food challenge testing remains an essential element in the diagnosis and management of food allergy. In fact, the double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenge remains the gold standard for the diagnosis of food allergy. In this review, we focus on the optimal timing of oral food challenges, especially for patients with a known food allergy, to determine if the food allergy may have been outgrown.
