Hope For a Peanut Allergy Cure

February 20, 2009 at 14:18 Leave a comment

Gone are the days of the PB&J lunch standard or even homemade cookies and cupcakes for the classroom party, but parents of peanut allergy sufferers may have reason to hope as a new treatment out of Britain has successfully reduced deadly reactions to the nut. By slowly administering doses of peanut flour, as opposed to oil or extract, physicians at Cambridge’s Addenbrooke hospital have allowed kids who once would have been sent into anaphylactic shock from even trace amounts to consume up to ten peanuts without reaction. They stress that these experiments should not be tried outside of the confines of the study, whose results are published in the latest issue of the journal Allergy. Source.
