Consortium of Food Allergy Research (CoFAR)

Text from their about page:

The Consortium of Food Allergy Research (CoFAR) was established in July 2005 by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to conduct both observational and clinical studies to answer questions related to food allergies.

A food allergy is an immunological disease that is responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality. Food allergies occur in 6­8% of children and 2% of adults, and prevalence is increasing. Severe food allergic reactions may cause anaphylaxis and/or death.

CoFAR Studies
Recent advances in food allergy research suggest that the direction of new, focused research will advance our understanding of the pathophysiology of food allergies and translate these findings into new options for identification and treatment of susceptible individuals.
