At the College’s Annual Scientific Meeting, new research presented showed promise for a treatment to help people with severe peanut allergy tolerate accidental peanut exposure. The abstract titled Age-Related Findings from the Peanut Allergy Oral Immunotherapy Study of AR101 for Desensitization (PALISADE) Study, was presented by Stephen Tilles, MD, FACAAI, College past president. The results of the study were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study shows it is possible for some people with peanut allergy to protect themselves from accidental ingestion by building up their tolerance to peanut over time.
During the College's Annual Scientific Meeting, Twitter was flooded with the latest allergy info from our sessions. Allergists who were not able to make it to Seattle could follow along from home, and attendees were able to help spread the latest and greatest evidence-based science around the world. Here at the College, we deeply appreciate our College members and meeting attendees who like and retweet our posts and contribute their own, so we've rounded up some of the best pearls tweeted during the meeting for you to enjoy.
