What Is TIP?

The Tolerance Induction Program™ (TIP) is a safe and effective food allergy treatment that helps children and young adults overcome their severe food allergies, typically within 2 -3 years*.

TIP uses highly customized plans, supervised in-office visits, and regulated at-home dosing with the goal of achieving remission. After completing the program, 99% of TIP patients have achieved this level of Food Freedom.

Regardless of pre-existing conditions or the number of food allergies a patient has, TIP can help.

*Treatment duration varies by patient.

Why Patients Choose TIP

Our approach to severe food allergy treatment is unlike any other immunotherapy available.

Consistent, Precision Care
Where other immunotherapies vary from practice to practice, TIP uses precision medicine to uphold a consistent quality of care for all patients.

Proven Success Rate
With more than 8,000 patients in remission, the Tolerance Induction Program has the highest global success rate (99%) of any food allergy treatment.

Unparalleled Safety
Traditional immunotherapy can result in a number adverse reactions ranging from GI issues to anaphylaxis. TIP is the safest treatment option available with reaction rates less than 1%.

Food Freedom
OIT and similar therapies aim to desensitize patients to protect them from “accidental exposure.” Through TIP, patients can eat as freely as a non-allergic person would.

How TIP Works

Using extensive patient data, we create safe treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique immune system.

TIP is not an exposure therapy like OIT. With the Tolerance Induction Program™ (TIP), patients build a tolerance to their allergens through the escalation of food proteins similar in structure to their allergens (biosimilar proteins). This means patients can safely desensitize their immune system before they ever begin dosing their allergens.

Steps to Food Freedom

1

Pre-Treatment

Every patient journey begins with diagnostic testing at our clinic to map out the immune system and create your custom plan.

2

Custom Plan

During this phase, we identify biosimilar proteins to retrain the immune system and safely build tolerance one protein at a time.

3

Building Tolerance

As desensitization increases, patients can begin to safely dose foods they were once allergic to and incorporate new foods into their diets.

4

Remission

Remission means no more reading food labels, no more missed birthday parties, and no more stress. Patients can eat freely without restriction or fear of reaction.

How Long Is Treatment?

There are a number of factors that determine the length of treatment. Age, severity of allergens, type of allergen, family history, health history, etc. All must be considered when designing the patient’s unique protocol. The length of treatment will vary based on each patient’s individual plan. At the end of the second visit, you will have a clear idea of how long your treatment length will be.  Generally, the average treatment timeline is 24 – 36 months.
