  • Peanut allergy drug approved by the US FDA

    The drug AR101, or Palforzia, uses oral immunotherapy, with children given tiny but increasing amounts of peanut protein over a six-month period under medical supervision.

    After that, users must continue to take a daily dose to be able to tolerate accidental exposure to the nuts.

    The treatment is not a cure and makers warn that the risk of a potentially fatal anaphylactic reaction remains.

    And patients must continue to avoid peanuts in their diet.
