Pulling the Plug on Peanut Allergy

(April 14, 2017)

DALLAS, April 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As national guidelines have changed recently regarding the introduction of peanuts into infant diets, select Allergy Partners locations have begun offering a new program called Food Allergy Risk Reduction (FARRŪ).


Peanut allergy is an increasingly common and potentially life-threatening condition.  Two recent studies indicate that, contrary to previous recommendations, the early introduction of peanut to the diet of at risk children lowers the risk of developing peanut allergy.

These studies have profound clinical implications in that they offer a strategy to prevent the onset of peanut allergy in high-risk children. Recently, the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) convened an expert panel to review and revise guidelines for the introduction of peanut into the diets of infants. These new guidelines were published in January, 2017 and can be found at: http://www.jacionline.org/article/S0091-6749(16)31222-2/fulltext.

In summary, the new guidelines emphasize the following:
