Oral Food Challenges
Oral Food Challenges (OFC’s) are the gold standard for food allergy diagnosis. Blood tests and skin prick tests for food allergy yield many false positive results leading to many “worried well” who may be placed on inappropriate and expensive therapies. Furthermore, false negative results may leave allergic patients at risk of accidental exposure.
OFC’s have been shown to improve the quality of life of patients as they can give individuals an indication as to whether they are likely to react to foods carrying ‘may contain’ allergen labels. In addition, OFC’s provides an opportunity for the critical training of patients in the use of rescue medication.
Reacta’s products are manufactured in a world-class Pharma GMP accredited facility with the goal of being the first regulatory-approved OFC available on the market.
