Description

The Immune Tolerance Network (ITN) is an international clinical research consortium sponsored by NIAID, part of the National Institutes of Health. Our mission is to accelerate the clinical development of immune tolerance therapies.

Immune tolerance therapies reprogram the immune system in a highly specific manner so that disease-causing immune responses are stopped while maintaining the immune system’s ability to combat pathogen infection. The ITN develops and conducts clinical trials and mechanistic studies of specialized immune tolerance therapies in the following areas:

  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Allergies and Asthma
  • Organ Transplantation
  • Type 1 Diabetes
