2016 VAM: 1806 - Non-IgE-Mediated Gastrointestinal Food Allergies in Children and Adults
Non-IgE mediated food allergic disorders are well-established clinical category of food allergy, with predominant involvement of the gastrointestinal tract. Diagnosis of non-IgE mediated food allergy is confounded by the lack of non-invasive laboratory biomarkers and relies on oral food challenges. Management is also problematic, with significant dietary restrictions imposed on the affected patients.
Among the non-IgE-mediated food allergic disorders, FPIES and non-celiac wheat sensitivity have recently garnered significant attention due to potential severity of reactions in FPIES and increased public awareness of wheat sensitivity.
This symposium will review the non-IgE mediated food allergic disorders that frequently present diagnostic and management dilemmas.
