Peanut allergies raise fears among parents, teachers, but treatment is now available.
Living with peanut allergy can be like living in an earthquake zone. Sufferers might go through life enduring tremors in the form of a tingling sensation around the mouth or hives, but the life-threatening chance of “the big one” always looms. Not knowing if or when it will occur can leave patients and their families in a constant state of anxiety. The Jan. 31, 2020, FDA approval of Aimmune Therapeutic’s Palforzia® [Peanut (arachis hypogaea) Allergen Powder-dnfp] has helped relieve some of that stress.
