Peanut allergy patch
PEOPLE allergic to peanuts might soon be able to breathe easier, as peanut patches designed to help those with allergies to become less sensitive have shown promise in a recent US clinical trial published on the JAMA network.
The patch gives the patient continual exposure to controlled amounts of peanut proteins and doesn’t pose the risk of triggering the allergy that actually eating peanuts would, researchers explain.
The trial used patches with low, intermediate and high doses of peanut protein and compared them to a placebo patch.
