The Tolerance Induction Program
SoCal Food Allergy’s unique approach to food allergy treatment is called the Tolerance Induction Program (TIP). TIP is a specialized treatment program designed to help children with life-threatening food allergies achieve true food freedom – the ability to eat whatever they want, whenever they want, in unlimited quantities – without fear of reaction.
We are committed to safety.
Safety is our number one priority and the hallmark of our program. Since 2005, more than 40,000 challenges have been safely passed in our clinic and millions of doses have been safely eaten at home. In more than a decade of treating patients, only 0.004% have needed to use epinephrine. Less than 5% of our patients experience any frequent adverse events. Our near perfect success rate means that our graduates can now safely eat whatever they would like without limitation. With 13 years of history behind us, our early graduates continue to demonstrate that TIP means secure, sustainable success.
Precision Medicine Approach
We believe each child’s food allergy treatment should be just as unique as they are. TIP is built on over a decade of diagnostic data collected from the patients we have treated. This amounts to over 500 million data points. What is the purpose of collecting all that data? The data allows us to use high-powered mathematics and analytics to best understand food allergy and how to safely treat each child to overcome their unique food allergies. Each child’s data directly drives their treatment—down to the milligram of food protein for each dose throughout the program. This means every child receives an entirely unique form of therapy. It also means that each new case grows the amount of data that we can continually study and analyze—leading to an even better understanding of food allergy and an even more efficient treatment program.
Long-Term Treatment and Research Model
Our patients and their families can feel good about being a part of a program that not only treats their food allergies but also allows our research team to advance the food allergy treatment cause for all children. Our long-term treatment and research model actively and successfully treats patients in our clinic while our research team continuously studies blood and immune cells in our on-site laboratory to better understand how we can safely speed up the treatment process.
