Matthew Greenhawt, Marcus Shaker, Elissa M Abrams (2022-01-22). [Comment] Peanut oral immunotherapy in very young children. thelancet.com Peanut oral immunotherapy is a disease-modifying treatment to raise the peanut quantity necessary to trigger an allergic reaction. Among children older than 4 years undergoing peanut oral immunotherapy, nearly 75—80% achieve desensitisation, although few gain lasting protection (eg, remission) after discontinuing oral immunotherapy.1 Efficacy is balanced by an increased risk of treatment-associated anaphylaxis versus peanut avoidance, a preference-sensitive consideration manageable in partnership with a supervising allergist.
