Q & A - Clinical Research - Food Allergy Treatment Talk

This past week, I led a question and answer session with the private Facebook group, Food Allergy Treatment Talk. The following Q&A is published with kind permission by the administrators of the group. Much more discussion followed that is not published on this blog to keep responses anonymous. I highly encourage anyone thinking of participating in clinical research to take a look. We only advance our understanding, treatments, and potential cures through those choosing to participate in clinical research - altruism at its best!

This discussion couldn't have come at a better time as FARE announces the beginning of a clinical network that will help organize and speed discovery toward treatments and cures. I'm sure more will follow on how this network will achieve these goals!

Questions and Answers

1)   Clinical studies vs. clinical trials: is there a difference?
