Scientists Developed a New Therapy Able to Treat Peanut Allergy
Australian scientists report that they developed an immune-based therapy able to treat peanut allergy in kids. After this therapy, children could eat peanuts without any reactions for four years.
A team of Australian researchers added probiotics to an earlier developed immunotherapy treatment which combined probiotics with small doses of peanuts. The results of the research showed that 82% of kids receiving the therapy significantly reduced their allergic reactions to peanuts compared to 4% of children who didn’t receive any treatment.
Dr. Anna Nowak-Wegrzyn, an associate professor of pediatrics at Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai Hospital, says: “I think there is certainly a suggestion, but not hard proof, that the probiotics make a difference.”
