Camallergy and OnDosis Announce a Groundbreaking Partnership to Revolutionize Food Allergy Treatment

CAMBRIDGE, England & GOTHENBURG, Sweden–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Camallergy, a pioneer in developing oral immunotherapy treatments for food allergies, and OnDosis, a leader in intelligent dosing of oral solid medicines, are excited to announce a strategic collaboration.


This partnership is set to transform the way food allergies (including peanut allergy) are treated, combining Camallergy’s innovative therapies with OnDosis’ cutting-edge Dosage Manager device technology. The drug-device combination aims to address the challenges physicians face in offering oral immunotherapy, making the treatment more accessible for patients.

A new era in oral immunotherapy

Oral immunotherapy (OIT) is a proven technique to retrain the body’s immune system to tolerate food allergens. It works by taking regular oral doses of the allergen, which start low and build gradually towards a maintenance dose.

OnDosis brings a novel electromechanical Dosage Manager to this collaboration, replacing traditional pull-apart capsules during the ‘up-dosing’ phase. This dosing device delivers precise doses from allergen cartridges, allowing for tiny, controlled dose increments.

Revolutionizing treatment and reducing burden

The collaboration between Camallergy and OnDosis aims to dramatically reduce the treatment burden associated with traditional oral immunotherapy. By enabling tiny, controlled dose increases, patients can eliminate the need for frequent clinic visits. Instead, the idea is for the smaller dose increments to be taken at home.

A blend of efficacy and convenience

At-home up-dosing aims to combine the efficacy of OIT with the convenience of other immunotherapy approaches (such as epicutaneous and sublingual).

Eliminating the need for up-dosing visits frees up significant time for both patients and doctors, addressing the major barrier in the uptake of OIT. It could even make the treatment suitable for adults, a customer segment currently out of reach of licensed peanut OIT.

“The extra convenience will be a big selling point” said Professor Matthew Greenhawt, MD, University of Colorado School of Medicine. “Logistics in oral immunotherapy is a huge detriment, and a barrier to adoption. Moving to at-home up-dosing will bring innumerable advantages.”

Personalised treatment

The partnership prioritizes individual patient needs, offering tailored treatments. Our patient-centric approach aims to smooth the treatment experience, providing a more comfortable and efficient path to desensitization.

Next steps

Camallergy is currently in discussions with regulatory authorities including the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in preparation for clinical trials for peanut allergy in the UK and abroad.
