How to Use Phenotyping to Guide Management of Food Allergy

You must be signed in to view this CME course.

This education is about:

  • Understanding the definition and application of clinical phenotypes
  • Identifying biomarkers present in allergic inflammation 
  • Describing phenotypes seen in patients with asthma, atopic dermatitis and food allergy
  • Applying phenotypes plus biomarkers to select biologic therapy in patients with asthma and atopic dermatitis 

Why it matters:

Phenotyping in the clinical setting may be utilized to predict symptoms severity, concurrent allergy conditions and response to therapy.  Along with biomarkers phenotypes may be used to determine eligibility for biologic therapy.

Target Audience:

Developed to support health care providers involved in childhood health including pediatricians, nurses, dietitians, and pediatric subspecialists.
