My allergist asked me if he could submit my name for peanut allergy research. The research is being done at Childrens Memorial Hospital in Boston. He had very little information, only that it would involve a peanut challenge at the end and he assumed one at the beginning (to see what the difference was). He did know that it would require regular visits to Boston for desensitation injections.

I told him I would be interested. BTW - I am 41.

Have any of you heard of this study?

The only thing I know about this study is that they are researching a vaccine and the study is being done at 7 well known hospitals. They are looking for people between the ages of 12-60. I am not sure but I think they are looking for pa people who have had a reaction of some kind in the past. What they hope to come up with is a vaccine against pa to help desensitize the allergy so it is not as life threatening. If you find out anymore please be sure to keep us all posted. Good Luck!

Msfz,

I would be interested to find out more info on this because, people like you can help our children for the future-I did hear about this vaccine they were trying to come up with because, my pediatrician told me & I am taking my son to Mt. Sinai in NYC-I would never have my child challenged but, if I were allergic I would do it for the children. Maybe I am being selfish but, I can't take any chances with my son.

I commend you if you are willing to do this & I would be grateful if you did do all this because, this would mean so much for us moms & people with PA.

Please keep us posted & GOOD LUCK!!!!

Ronna
