Management of peanut allergy: a focus on novel immunotherapies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The management of peanut allergy involves strict avoidance, prompt recognition of allergic reactions, and rapid initiation of epinephrine and other supportive therapy for anaphylaxis. Avoidance presents several challenges and burdens to quality of life and daily activities. Currently, no treatment options are available for peanut allergy apart from epinephrine, which is the treatment of choice for severe allergic reactions. In recognition of the need for improved treatment options among patients with peanut allergy, several novel immunotherapies are undergoing clinical development, and clinicians must be knowledgeable about the safety and efficacy of these agents. This educational activity will provide an overview of current practices in peanut allergy management and novel immunotherapies with potential to improve outcomes among children and adults with peanut allergy.
