Potential peanut allergy treatment 'successful'

30th January 2014

85 children took part in a large clinical trial of a potential peanut allergy treatment.


The children were given small doses of peanut protein  everyday but ramped up during the study.

The findings, published in the Lancet, showed 84% of children allergic to peanuts could eat the equivalent of five a day after six months.

However, experts have warned that the therapy is not yet ready for widespread use.
