Peanut-allergy trial on children

This series of posts is from a mom whose 2-year-old is in a peanut allergy desensitisation trial. There's another set from another mom in the same trial.

The first child has gone from being extremely senstitive to peanuts to being able to tolerate two peanuts a day.

More importantly: both are still alive after eating the equivalent of a LOT of peanuts. (They powder the peanuts into peanut flour for the trial.)

I'd call this hope for the future.
