Hope for peanut allergy sufferers?


I draw a lot of strength from articles which remind me that allergists and researchers around the world are trying their best to find a cure for food allergy sufferers especially peanut which, can trigger anaphylaxis. As Dr. Anna Nowak-Wegrzyn, associate professor of pediatrics at Mount Sinai said, “This is very exciting, clearly, because here we have somebody who can have anaphylaxis and deadly reaction from trace amounts, and you’re converting this person into somebody who can tolerate a significant amount of the food.” Whether it is immunotherapy or Chinese herbal medicine which has the potential to help people like my son, the ‘Hope’ makes me feel that ‘Dreams can come true!’ Extremely encouraging article…
