SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- IgGenix, Inc, today congratulated co-founder Kari Nadeau, M.D., Ph.D., and her co-author, Sloan Barnett, on the publication of their book ‘The End of Food Allergy’, a seminal work detailing the prevention, diagnosis and reversal of food allergies, with insight into the future of allergy treatment and therapies. Food allergy is a costly and potentially life-threatening condition that, according to the Food Allergy Research and Education, affects about 32 million people in the United States alone.

“The prevalence of food allergies continues to rise,” said Dr. Nadeau. “We now have viable pathways forward for the millions suffering from food allergy. Having spent my career working with patients of all ages, researching every available option and theory. It’s an honor to share that experience, research and information with the broader community as they navigate the journey of food allergy. In addition, I believe it is critical that we pursue new therapeutic options like antibody-based therapies, including those in development at IgGenix, that may offer important alternatives as the future of allergy treatment.”

“Kari’s deep expertise and thought leadership in the field of food allergies is clearly displayed in the book,” said Mr. Hironaka, CEO of IgGenix. “We congratulate both Kari and Sloan on their ability to communicate the range of emotions and true terror most people living with food allergy, and particularly parents of children with severe food allergy, experience on a daily basis. While this can be exceptionally overwhelming, Kari and Sloan’s book provides hope for today, that there are viable steps to take in order to engage in life without fear, as well as hope for tomorrow that the increasing therapeutic development efforts will provide even better options for the future.”
