Abstract

This review highlights research and policy advances in food allergy that were published in 2017 in the Journal and beyond. In 2017, many important studies on the treatment of food allergy were published, bringing us ever closer to a standardized treatment for food allergy. Other important advancements included research into other management strategies, including thresholds for avoidance, management of food allergies in schools, and development of new guidelines for prevention of food allergy. There were several important epidemiologic studies helping us understand the phenotypes of allergic disease, and new hypotheses were proposed for how best to prevent food allergy. Finally, there was a welcome increased attention to non–IgE-mediated food allergies.
