Peanut-Allergy-Cured-With-P

Although people with peanut allergy shy away from even trace amounts, new research at Duke University Medical Center is working on the premise that the cure may be in the peanut itself.

In one study, 75 percent of children with peanut allergies who ate increasing amounts of peanut protein daily for 3 to 5 years can now eat unlimited amounts of peanuts.

“They build up to a higher dose and that goes on for about 6 to 8 months and then at a certain point their immune system begins to change so that they’re no longer having reactions,” said Burks.
