Launched in 2015, the FARE Clinical Network is made up of 28 leading research and care sites nationwide and represents an investment by FARE of approximately $2.7 million annually.

In approximately one year, FARE Clinical Network centers served more than 56,000 patients with food allergies. More than a third of those patients were new to the centers, reinforcing the urgent need for initiatives such as the network.

FARE Clinical Network centers are serving as sites for clinical trials for the development of new therapeutics. They are also developing best practices for the care of patients with food allergies.

FARE plans to further expand the network to 40 to 50 sites within the next three years.

  1. Please request interest and examination of inactive ingredients in prescription and OTC medications including foods and their impact on those of us who have to take them and have no other choice. I am allergic to milk, wheat, corn, soy, oats, coconut and yeast as well as a multitude of environmental items. I had my thyroid destroyed with radioactive iodine about 20 years ago. I need levothyroxine. Synthroid gives me a headache and I think the acacia which is tree based impacts my allergies. The generic has corn in it. One pharmaceutical that is available is in trouble and is being investigated. It doesn’t have corn but it has sodium laurel sulfate in it which is in question as to being cancer causing. The one from Lannett is reported by patients to cause side effects including hair loss. I purchased the brand by Tirosint from Sweden and I became very hypothyroid (17.89). I have to have this medication. What am I to do? When you read the list of inactive ingredients in drugs you can be amazed. One pharmaceutical puts varnish in my blood pressure medicine. I read an article that says “most foods in prescriptions don’t cause problems.” Most means that some do. We “some” care about how we feel and are concerned that we must take medications that make us feel worse instead of better.

  2. Good to know that FARE Clinical Network is expanding and will continue to expand in future as well. This is a great network helping people having food allergies to treat it effectively. As the professionals at FARE network are performing extensive research to treat food allergies, the expansion should be welcomed.
