Good news for peanut allergy sufferers

I don’t have a peanut allergy, but I recall that some members here do or have friends and family that have the allergy. Because of that I just thought that I would share this story which seems to offer some hope.

So it’s a general histamine blocker?

Is it really wise taking shots to inhibit the immune system systemically for a food allergy?

Unless I missed it, I don’t recall how the shots work. In any case, the shots seem better than the alternative. I.E., a potential fatal reaction.

Unfortunately, the treatment is being delayed by three companies suing each other over the rights.
