How do I obtain information on research being done on peanut allergies. A relitive wishs to donate money on behalf of my PA child, but she specifically wants to donate to an organization working on injections as a possable cure.

I believe that the company Tanox is the one conducting clinical trials on humans for a possible vaccine. Check back on this category and it was posted back in August the actual news release on the trials....thanks to your relative for donating the money!

The National Jewish Center for Immunology and Respiratory Medicine in Denver, CO is an excellent research institute and has been conducting peanut allergy studies for years. They are probably also a non-profit organizagtion.
