Peanut allergy treatment 'a success'

The 85 children had to eat peanut protein every day - initially in small doses, but ramped up during the study. The findings, published in the Lancet, suggest 84% of allergic children could eat the equivalent of five peanuts a day after six months.

Experts have warned that the therapy is not yet ready for widespread use. There is no treatment so the only option for patients is to avoid them completely, leading to a lifetime of checking every food label before a meal.
