Our Allergy and Immunology team collaborates with other UT Southwestern specialists to address other areas that may be affected by allergies. These specialties often include gastroenterology, ear, nose and throat (ENT), pulmonology and psychology.

Evidence-based treatments

Our treatments are evidence-based, meaning they are backed by research and clinical trials involving patients just like your child. As a major pediatric training hospital for UT Southwestern, the physicians who practice here drive advances in pediatric allergy. Your child may qualify for an open clinical trial, so please check back often to learn more about our current research.

Find an open clinical trial for your child

Once we have identified your child’s triggers, a wide variety of treatments are available, including anti-IgE therapy to stop IgE immune cells from starting the allergic process.
