Peanut allergy can be beaten with a treatment that slowly builds up tolerance, a large study shows.
None of nearly 500 four- to 17-year-olds from the US and Europe could tolerate even a 10th of a peanut dose.
But after taking tiny daily doses for a year, two-thirds could tolerate at least two whole peanuts.
Emily Pratt, six, told the BBC’s Today programme it had made a big difference. “I couldn’t have a birthday cake at parties and now I can,” she said.
