  • New type of peanut allergy treatment could potentially be used to treat all food allergies in the future.
  • Study on 20 adults with severe peanut allergies shows that an antibody treatment, called etokimab, can stop a key molecule from activating the immune system.
  • Two weeks after just one injection, 11 people could eat a small serving of peanuts with no allergic reaction.
  • The treatment still has a lot of studies to go through before being approved.
