Children At Lower Peril Of Peanut Allergy Must Eat Peanut Early

According to new findings from the study, kids who do not eat peanuts in their first year of life are quite likely to develop an allergy to peanut at 3 Years. The CHILD Cohort study used data from more than 2,600 Canadian kids and revealed that children who did not eat peanuts in their first 12 months of life were almost four times to have a clinical allergy for peanut at 3 Years in correlation to infants who ate peanut before their first birthday. The study was issued in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice.

Dr. Elinor Simons, Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba, said, “Some of the most famous studies focusing on the timings of peanut introduction have studied children who were at the greatest peril of developing a peanut allergy. The findings are important as the CHILD Cohort study is done on the general population and most of the kids are not at the higher menace of peanut allergy. Even when we expelled high-risk kids, untimely peanut introduction was linked with lesser jeopardy of peanut allergy at 3 Years. This showed that lower-risk kids might also gain from early introduction of peanut.”

On a similar note, recently a study showed that immunotherapy for peanut allergy presents protection but not a cure. Scientists from KCL (King’s College London) discovered that a possible treatment for peanut allergy offers some level of protection but does not treat an allergic patient and this can explain why allergic responses are still seen during treatment. The study was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. The researchers examined samples of patients who experience peanut allergy by POIT (peanut oral immunotherapy) and discovered that it does not stop them from being allergic instead it just suppressed the reaction.
