A preventative treatment for peanut allergies, one of the most severe food allergies, has been developed by San Francisco-based Aimmune Therapeutics and could be the world’s first approved drug for this condition

Sensitivity to peanuts is one of the most dangerous food allergies. Even the smallest traces can cause severe allergic reactions, which can be fatal. The allergy is also relatively common; an estimated 250,000 children in England alone are allergic to peanuts, with rates are on the rise. Peanut allergies are also highly persistent and four out of five children with peanut allergies remain allergic into adulthood.
