Child Peanut Allergy Treatment ‘Breakthrough’

Child Peanut Allergy Treatment ‘Breakthrough’



A breakthrough in treating peanut allergies may have been made by a team of British researchers.

A trial was carried out with 99 children, giving them a tiny dose of peanut protein every day, which was gradually increased.

The team found that 84% of the allergic children could eat the equivalent of five peanuts a day after six months.

It’s really important to remember that this trial was carried out safely by medical experts.

If you have a nut allergy, it would be very dangerous to try and eat them on your own. And many more tests are still needed before this type of treatment becomes more widespread.
