A new study shows that a skin patch could help reduce peanut allergies in children. The skin patch delivers protein in small doses thereby alleviating the symptoms of the allergy. Researchers from the Consortium of Food Allergy Research tested 74 peanut-allergic volunteers, aged between 4 – 20 to see whether the VIAskin peanut patch could reduce their reaction to the...
