Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Other interventions - Questionnaire
Other interventions - Peanut Skin prick test
Other interventions - Fraction of exhaled nitric oxide
Other interventions - Spirometry
Other interventions - Serum Peanut and Ara h2 specific immunoglobulin E
Other interventions - Collection of blood biomarker
Other interventions - Peanut food challenge

Other: Entire group - Children aged 2-17 years with suspected peanut allergy who require peanut food challenge to confirm clinical allergy, will be recruited for the study. They will undergo a preceding questionnaire, peanut skin prick testing, spirometry, fraction of exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) measurement, serum peanut and Ara h2 specific immunoglobulin E (sIgE) antibodies, and collection of blood biomarker prior to food challenge. The primary endpoint will be anaphylaxis at open label peanut challenge, with the primary exposure of interest will be the serum biomarker.


Other interventions: Questionnaire
5 minute questionnaire focused on symptoms of allergic disease

Other interventions: Peanut Skin prick test
Skin prick testing with peanut antigen, according to ASCIA Skin Prick testing manual

Other interventions: Fraction of exhaled nitric oxide
Measurement of exhaled nitric oxide, according to American Thoracic Society/ European Thoracic Society (ATS/ERS) standardised procedures (Not required for those age less than 6 years).

Other interventions: Spirometry
Measurement of lung flows/volumes, according to ATS/ERS standardised procedures (Not required for those age less than 6 years).

Other interventions: Serum Peanut and Ara h2 specific immunoglobulin E
Peanut and Ara h2 specific IgE antibodies

Other interventions: Collection of blood biomarker
Correlation of blood biomarker levels in patients with successful or unsuccessful peanut food challenge

Other interventions: Peanut food challenge
Open label peanut challenge conducted according to ASCIA's peanut challenge protocol and PRACTALL consensus report

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Blood biomarker predicting anaphylaxis at peanut food challenge - The primary outcome of the project is to confirm that a novel blood biomarker has a higher diagnostic accuracy as compared to current best testing in predicting anaphylaxis at open label peanut challenge.
Timepoint [1] 0 0
At completion of peanut food challenge
Secondary outcome [1] 0 0
Blood biomarker in combination with FeNO, and/or Ara h2 sIgE predicting anaphylaxis at peanut food challenge - The secondary outcome will be to determine the value of the biomarker, FeNO and Ara h2 sIgE (individually and in combination) at predicting anaphylaxis or clinical allergy at open label peanut challenge.
Timepoint [1] 0 0
At completion of peanut food challenge

Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
- Children aged 2 - 17 years with an allergy to peanut and require peanut challenge to
confirm peanut allergy.
Minimum age
2 Years
Maximum age
17 Years
Gender
Both males and females
Can healthy volunteers participate?
No
Key exclusion criteria
- Children with Peanut Skin Prick Test (SPT) wheal size greater than 10mm as these
children are likely to have clinical peanut allergy (no clinical indication for food
challenge).

Summary
Brief summary
Peanut allergy can be life-threatening. Current diagnostic techniques for peanut allergy have
high sensitivity, but not high specificity. This clinical trial will test the validity of a
novel blood biomarker (compared with current testing) as a diagnostic predictor of
anaphylaxis to peanut.
