Largest ever trial to tackle peanut allergies22nd February 2010
Scientists in Cambridge say they will carry out the biggest ever trial to try to find a way of treating peanut allergies.
The £1 million trial will involve 104 children in Britain, who will be given 'increasing doses' of peanut flour. The researchers hope this will build up their tolerance to peanuts, as the results of a previous trial showed that 20 out of 31 participants were able to consume more than 30 peanuts without an allergic reaction.
