The aim of the study is to test the hypothesis that probiotic and egg OIT is more effective than placebo at inducing sustained unresponsiveness (remission) in participants with egg allergy 8 weeks after end-of-treatment.
This is a randomised, placebo-controlled trial investigating whether probiotic given in combination with egg OIT is effective at inducing sustained unresponsiveness in egg allergic children.
The participants in this study are aged between 5 and 17 years old at time of enrolment. Participants are allergic to egg, and may have additional food allergies.
