The Latest in Peanut Allergy Research
The latest in peanut allergy research suggests that some patients can be desensitized to minimize the development of allergy symptoms. Desensitization is based on exposing the patient incrementally to more and more of the allergen. Of course this must be done methodically and with utmost caution under the supervision of an allergist. While smaller studies have shown promise in this area, further research is necessary to determine short and long term safety and efficacy.
