  • ...have any experiments been undertaken to desensitize people with this allergy?

    You are what you think.
    • Enzyme Potentiated Desensitization (EPD) originated in the UK, I believe, was shown to be effective. Unfortunately for USAians, the FDA cut off such treatment in the US for the time being last year.

      I used EPD for five years for my non-life-threatening allergies and was quite pleased with the results.

      • I read a few descriptions about peanut allergy; perhaps combining avoidance with any desensitization therapy that becomes available will provide a little extra comfort.

        • Avoidance is still recommended. People who use EPD for peanut allergy are usually doing so to make it more likely they will survive if they accidentally ingest a microscopic amount of peanut, not to make it possible to eat peanut butter wholesale.
