An allergy to peanuts can be a life-threatening problem

An allergy to peanuts can be a life-threatening problem, but there may be an effective and save way of treating the condition. A clinical trial recently conducted in the USA shows that almost 80 percent of peanut-allergic kids of pre-school age were able to safely include foods containing peanuts in their diets after undergoing peanut oral immunotherapy (OIT), which involves eating small, but gradually increasing quantities of peanut protein on a daily basis. Researchers found that the procedure effectively suppressed the children’s allergic immune responses to peanuts.
