New research suggests peanut allergy avoidable if eaten as a child
New research in the UK suggests babies should be exposed to nuts to stop them becoming allergic later in life. Trials proved that children exposed to nuts at an earlier age reduced their chances of becoming allergic, whereas those who were exposed at a later stage did in fact develop an allergic reaction to peanuts. A peanut allergy is recognised as one of the most severe in the world, causing anything from swelling and sneezing, to death. Al Jazeera's Charlie Angela reports from London.

A few kids now are allergy-free thanks to a scary treatment, tiny amounts of the very food that endangered them. (March 15) [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] NB. THIS IS A VOICEOVER TRANSCRIPT, NOT A FULL SHOT LIST. DURHAM, N.C. -- Study: Eating peanuts in small doses could cure potentially deadly peanut allergies.

((TRACK)) ((SUPER: Hillsborough, N.C.)) ((VO of child playing in yard.)) SEVEN YEAR OLD RYAN CASSADA (cass-UH-duh), HAS BEEN ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS SINCE AGE TWO. ((SOT)) ((SUPER: Rhonda Cassada/Mother)) "He turned red and was itching all over his ears and his neck." ((TRACK)) ((VO of child eating peanut candy.)) BUT MOST DAYS BEFORE DINNER, WITH MOM AND DAD NEARBY, RYAN EATS A HANDFUL OF CHOCOLATE COVERED PEANUTS. ((NATS)) Doctor talking to patient. ((TRACK)) ((VO of doctor talking to patient.)) IT'S PART OF A TREATMENT THAT'S SEEMINGLY CURED RYAN OF AN ALLERGY THAT PLAGUES ONE-POINT-EIGHT MILLION AMERICANS.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR PARENTS LIKE MARK AND RHONDA CASSADA, WHO WORRIED ABOUT RYAN ACCIDENTLY COMING IN CONTACT WITH SUCH A POPULAR FOOD PRODUCT. ((SOT)) ((Burks)) They send them to school, they send them to daycare, and their concern, apprehension about sending them out there is less.

Have scientists found a way to cure peanut allergies in children? Exposing youngsters to tiny fractions over time can stop life-threatening reaction British scientists have made a major breakthrough in the battle to cure children who suffer from peanut allergies. A form of immunotherapy treatment has overcome the allergy in more than four out of five children in a trial, many of whom were at risk of life-threatening reactions. The treatment works by gradually exposing the children to tiny amounts of the nut in the form of a powder mixed with another food. The amount -- equivalent to one 70th of a peanut -- is steadily increased over three to four months. Initially, the treatment is administered in a clinic in case of a reaction, but later parents are able to supervise it at home. Finally the children, aged between seven and 16, were able to eat five peanuts in one sitting, according to researchers at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

Cracking the peanut allergy | TechKnow
TechKnow investigates what's fuelling the spike in food-related allergies and whether science can cook up a cure. Every three minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room in the US. It's an alarming statistic that worries parents and adults across the nation. In some extreme cases, mere nanograms of peanut protein can trigger a dangerous reaction and a mad dash to the hospital. The US Centre for Disease Control reported that from 1997 to 2011 the number of children with food allergies increased 50 percent. Over 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies, at a cost of $25bn each year. "A hundred years ago people did have food allergies, but it wasn't to the same epidemic proportions that we are suffering from now," says Dr Kari Nadeau, an expert in adult and paediatric allergies and head of a special allergy research centre at Stanford University. "People are very much living with this disabling worry of having an accidental exposure." Allergic reactions occur when the body's immune system overreacts to certain proteins and food. While any food can trigger an allergic reaction, about 90 percent are caused by eight sources: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy and wheat. When the immune system launches a protective response, cells release antibodies known as immunoglobulin E (IgE). "An IgE is the match that lights the fire behind the allergy, within six minutes you can have this very serious allergic attack," Nadeau explains. The marching order for decades has been avoidance and training children to become allergen inspectors before consuming certain foods. But, it's very difficult to track and vet every plated meal or crumb that a child with a food allergy might come across. Accidental ingestion happens and, for some, it can be fatal. So now, instead of avoidance, experts are looking at new ways to retrain the immune system and develop new treatments to desensitise food allergies. At Stanford, a treatment called oral immunotherapy was effectively used for desensitising patients - one allergen at a time. But doctors faced a new problem, as a third of people the who suffer from allergies are allergic to not just one, but multiple foods. "The minute you have a food allergy you also have a higher rate and a chance of having other food allergies too," says Nadeau. In 2009, the team at Stanford decided to tackle this problem head-on. The breakthrough came in a form of an IgE-suppressing asthma drug called Xolair. According to the national Institute of Health, about 15 percent of people with food allergies also have asthma. The link between the two are the symptoms that can trigger an attack on the lungs. Since the Federal Drug Administration's (FDA) approval in 2003, Xolair has proven effective in severe cases of asthma. "If it's working against IgE and we know that IgE is important in food allergy, what if we start giving it initially to people with food allergies and then we start giving them the food that they're allergic to? Could that protective cover help us increase the ability to get children and adults to food allergens to the same level that they'd like to eat them?" According to Nadeau out of 700 patients in the studies conducted since 2003, all who completed the trials have had positive results. This is not the only way to tackle food allergies: Using traditional Chinese medicine, Dr Xiu-min Li has created a therapy called food allergy herbal formula two, clinically known as Fahf- 2. Studies show that herbal compounds in Fahf-2 reduce IgE levels and combat symptoms of peanut-induced anaphylaxis. The treatment is currently in advanced clinical trials, being tested as a new botanical drug under the complementary alternative medicine arm of the FDA. "This approach is effective to prevent reactions ... we will continue to work hard to build up an even stronger tolerance," Li explains. Scientists still don't know why food allergies are on the rise, but whether it's high-tech western-style medicine or alternative eastern herbal treatments, the solutions seem to be coming into focus.

Mayo Clinic Minute: Peanut allergy prevention
There’s been a major shift in strategy for preventing potentially deadly peanut allergies. After a decade and a half of being told to keep peanuts away from small children, parents now are being told the opposite. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a division within the National Institutes of Health, now recommends exposing infants to peanut protein when they’re only a few months old – ideally between the age of 4 to 6 months. Research shows the prevalence of peanut allergies among U.S. children multiplied roughly four-fold in the 10 years following a 2000 recommendation of peanut avoidance for infants and toddlers. Two percent of U.S children now are believed to be allergic to peanuts. “I think the initial guidelines back in 2000 were based on people thinking, ‘well, let’s try this,’ without a lot of scientific evidence to support it,” says Martha Hartz, M.D. , the division chair of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology in the Mayo Clinic Children's Center. The latest revisions to the guidelines were influenced by the 2015 Learning Early About Peanut Allergy study, which concluded that regular peanut exposure before age 5 reduced the risk of developing an allergy by more than 80 percent. Dr. Hartz praises the new recommendations for offering very specific instructions for safely introducing peanut exposure, depending on a child’s degree of allergy risk. “Any parent with a child that already has a food allergy, if they can prevent it in their other children, they’re going to be interested.” Dennis Douda reports.

How to Deal with Peanut Allergies
Watch more Allergies videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/33739-How-to-Deal-with-Peanut-Allergies As unusual as it may sound, peanuts cause 80 percent of fatal and near-fatal allergy attacks. Protect yourself with some precautionary steps. Warning Consult your physician to see if your allergies qualify you to receive a prescription for an epinephrine autoinjector or other medications. Step 1: Avoid direct contact Avoid direct contact with peanuts or anyone who has recently handled peanuts. Step 2: Avoid peanut-based products Pay attention to ingredient labels and stay away from products that contain peanuts — even peanut oil — or that may have been processed by machines or people who handled peanuts. Tip Be careful with alternative snacks: sunflower seeds and chocolate candies are often processed in the same factories as peanuts. Step 3: Alert your friends and family Let your friends and family know about your allergy so they don’t break out the nut bowls when you visit. Step 4: Avoid restaurants that use peanut oil Avoid restaurants that may cook with peanut oil—such as Thai and Chinese—as merely inhaling the smell of nuts could set off an allergic reaction. Step 5: Wear an ID bracelet Purchase and wear a medical ID bracelet that explains you have a peanut allergy so medical personnel know what to do in case of an emergency. Step 6: Carry antihistamine Carry an over-the-counter antihistamine with you in case you start to have an allergic reaction. Step 7: Carry injectable epinephrine If you know you’re at risk for a severe reaction, like shortness of breath or losing consciousness, have a doctor authorize you to carry an injectable dose of epinephrine (a shot of adrenaline) with you at all times. Did You Know? About 1 percent of Americans have a peanut allergy.
