Regeneron- Peanut Allergy Study

We are looking for kids 6-17 years old to participate in a peanut allergy desensitization study.  

This is a 72 week study looking to see if Dupilumab in cominbination with AR101 compared to placebo improves desensitization of peanut allergin. 


  • Children 6 -17 years old
  • Experience dose-limiting symptoms at or before the challenge dose of peanut protein on screening and not experiencing dose-limiting symptoms to placebo
  • Serum Immunoglobulin E (IgE) to peanut of ≥24 kUA/L and/or a skin prick test (SPT) to peanut ≥10 mm compared to a negative control
  • Participants/caregivers must be trained on the proper use of the epinephrine autoinjector device to be allowed to enroll in the study
  • Participants with other known food allergies must agree to eliminate these other food items from their diet so as not to confound the safety and efficacy data from the study

If interested call 520-621-CHOW (2469) and speak with Ivonne Angulo.
