Abstract

In the last decade, peanut oral immunotherapy research has shown promise as an alternative treatment to avoidance in peanut-allergic patients. Research has not only focused on desensitization, but also on immunologic changes and sustained-tolerance. This article reviews the current literature and the historical background of oral immunotherapy as well as immune mechanisms in oral immunotherapy and other therapies being explored in food allergic individuals.
