Peanut Allergy Treatment Update
Update on Bo's Peanut Allergy Treatment

Promising Peanut Allergy Treatment Results

Bo's daily peanut flour dosage for his peanut allergy treatment study is now equivalent to more than 1/2 a peanut. So far, Bo has not had any strong reaction to his daily dosages since he was switched to real peanut flour after his 1 year food challenge in June when we learned he had been on placebo the first year.

As you can see by a recent photo below taken at the play ground of Children's Hospital in Little Rock, we try to make Bo's (AKA "Indiana Jones") peanut allergy study treatments an adventure!

Even more exciting, is the fact that other kids in the same study with Bo, who are significantly ahead of him in daily dosage amounts because he was getting placebo the first year, are experiencing great results. These kids that were having severe allergic reactions to trace amounts of peanut when they started the peanut allergy treatment research study over a year ago, are now eating a few real peanuts, instead of peanut flour, every single day without any reaction! Early blood work results are indicating that the desensitization of their immune system to peanuts is potentially having a long term effect.

Thanks for the kind e-mails and comments posted to Bo's blog, please keep them coming!

Sincerely,

I've been told that the results of this processing of peanuts are good, but others have told me that there are side effects, such as leaving the skin red this much time in the sun, how do I know if this is true?

My daughter too had numerous food allergies including really bad ones to nuts. We have now cured her using allersodes from Biogetica. These basically teach your body to process an allergen without having an allergic reaction. This natural solution is really worth a try.
