Clinical Trial Summary

Food allergy is a potentially life-threatening condition, and its prevalence continues to increase despite public health efforts. There are currently no known therapies that can reliably prevent food-induced anaphylaxis. This is an open-label study designed to determine the ability acalabrutinib to prevent signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis during an oral food challenge in food-allergic adults.


Clinical Trial Description

Approximately 15 million people (including 8% of children) in the US have a food allergy and are at risk for life-threatening systemic reactions to foods. There is an unmet need for treatments capable of preventing such reactions. This is a phase II, single-center, open label trial involving the use of acalabrutinib (brand name Calquence®) to prevent food-induced anaphylaxis in adults with food allergy. Acalabrutinib is FDA-approved to treat certain medical conditions, but it is not approved to treat allergies. Adult participants with a physician-diagnosed food allergy to peanut and/or tree nuts will be enrolled. These participants will undergo an oral food challenge to peanut or a tree nut under close physician supervision to determine participants' baseline reactivity. After a rest period, the participants will take 4 oral doses of acalabrutinib 100 mg, and then repeat the oral food challenge to see if acalabrutinib will reduce participants' reactivity to peanut or tree nuts. ;
