1) The National Society for Research into Allergy
NSRA is a charitable
organisation that offers constructive information on a comprehensive
range of allergies, intolerances and related conditions. Their
volunteers are able to offer advice not only on foods and additives
(including an elimination diet used to identify any problem foods and
food ingredients), but on other areas such as airborne allergens,
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, and vitamin/mineral deficiencies.

2) The American EPD Study: 1993-2000
In 1993, the Investigational Review Board of the
Great Lakes Academy of Clinical Medicine approved a multi-centre
investigation of EPD treatment in the USA which ran for seven years.
With over 10,000 patients, including 6,030 with at least three
injections, this is the largest outcome-based study of any type of
immunotherapy ever undertaken. At the end of this audit, a white paper
(which you can find here) was presented to the US Congress.
The results of this open study show that between
70% and 80% of patients rated the improvement in their health as a
result of treatment with EPD as excellent, very good or good. The
unusually high level of safety of EPD also allowed a large number of
patients suffering from immediate-type food allergy to be included in
the study. This audit illustrates the wider effect of EPD as well - of
281 patients suffering from repeated ear infections, for example, 88%
reported very useful improvements in their condition.
