Windom Allergy continues to be at the forefront of treating food allergy patients with oral immunotherapy (OIT). Dr. Windom published an article about the current status of OIT in the United States in the September issue of the Annals of Allergy Asthma & Immunology. The article reported on the collaboration of allergists offering OIT as discussed at their 1 st annual meeting in 2017. The group met again in the summer of 2018, at which Drs.
