The International FPIES Association (I-FPIES) is dedicated to promoting and funding research that develops an evidence-based understanding of the pathophysiology, prevalence, epidemiology, and long-term outcomes of FPIES. We also seek supportive funding for early detection and diagnostic tools.


Current Research

The International FPIES Association is currently funding a promising multi-center study that looks at the genetics and pathophysiology of FPIES. Led by the Bambino Gesù Hospital (Rome) and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), this study is crucial to develop specific therapeutic strategies for the condition.
