PARKVILLE, Australia (NBC News) — Scientists may have found a cure, for the peanut allergy.
The experimental treatment combines a probiotic with small daily doses of peanut protein.
It was tested on a group of Australian children four years ago.
After 18 months — more than 80 percent no longer showed symptoms of peanut allergy.
Now a follow up study finds the majority of these children are still able to eat peanuts without an allergic reaction.
