|"Their immune system saw the peanut protein as perfectly normal because it was already presented on the white blood cells," Bryce said. "Without the treatment, these animals would have gone into anaphylactic shock."|
Finally, some discoveries in this field... I work at a box plan that makes Nestle cases and the crap we have to go through to be considered a "nut free environment" is almost unrealistic. I know it presents a threat to someone with these allergies but the odds of me eating a peanut butter sandwich then touching a box, then some one else with peanut allergy touching that same box in that same spot is probably lower than winning the lottery.
I'm sure it is very frustrating when your literal kyptonite is a single peanut and I hope for those effected with severe allergic reactions this actually amounts to something.
