Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Crab or Shrimp Allergy Reduction Study Using Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Techniques
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||National Taiwan University Hospital|
|Start date||June 2012|
|End date||July 2014|
|Trial size||80 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02208414, 201111069RID|
Purpose of this study is to determine whether NAET procedures are effective in the treatment of crab or shrimp allergy.
Hypothesis: experimental group will show a significant improvement over the control group in allergic symptom, serum crab- or shrimp-specific IgE and skin test for crab or shrimp extract.
|Endpoint classification||efficacy study|
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
|Masking||double blind (subject, investigator)|
Change from Baseline in allergic symptoms at 6 months
time frame: before NAET and 6 months after NAET
Serum crab- or shrimp-specific IgE
time frame: before NAET, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months after NAET
time frame: before NAET, 1 month and 6 months after NAET
Male or female participants at least 20 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Older or equal to 20 years old - History of allergic to crab or shrimp - Positive serum crab- or shrimp-specific IgE Exclusion Criteria: - History of anaphylactic shock - On medication of anti-histamine or steroid - Pregnancy
|Official title||A Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Crab Allergy Reduction Study Using Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Techniques in NTU Campus|
|Principal investigator||Cha Ze Lee, MD, PhD|
|Description||Nambudripad allergy elimination techniques (NAET) were developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad in 1983. Many patients have been relieved of allergy and allergy-related disease by this treatment. Lack of well-controlled clinical study prevents NAET from being accepted as a treatment option in current medical system. The aim of this project is to conduct a double blind-placebo controlled study of applying NAET to treat crab or shrimp allergy. The parameters to be measured are allergic symptom, crab- or shrimp-specific IgE and skin test before and after NAET treatment|
