WANTED at Least 50 Adults With Food Allergy – Can You Help?

The iFAAM  (Integrated Approaches to Food Allergen and Allergy Risk Management) project is funded by the EU and is the world’s largest ever study of allergies.  As part of this project, 2 year studies are being carried out in Ireland (University College Cork) and the UK (Manchester University):

    • Ireland   -   AlleRiSC  (Allergic Reactions in Social Context)
    • UK         -   AlleRiC    (Allergic Reactions in Community)

The research team at University College Cork are conducting the AlleRiSC study and are now ready to recruit at least 50 adult volunteers (with diagnosed food allergy) to participate  - CAN YOU HELP?

The study will be conducted over a period of 2 years and volunteers will be asked to use an online questionnaire to report any food-allergic incidents they experience (even the least severe ones) and where possible to send in samples of the suspect food for laboratory testing).
