Electrical stimulation in the nose induces sense of smell in human subjects

Massachusetts Eye and Ear

Physicians at Massachusetts Eye and Ear have, for the first time, induced a sense of smell in humans by using electrodes in the nose to stimulate nerves in the olfactory bulb, a structure in the brain where smell information from the nose is processed and sent to deeper regions of brain. Reporting online today in International Forum of Allergy & Rhinology, the research team describes their results, which provide a proof of concept for efforts to develop implant technology to return the sense of smell to those who have lost it.

Peanut Allergy Immunotherapy Shows Positive Results in Phase 3 Trial

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

About a year after receiving daily oral immunotherapy for severe peanut allergy, 67 percent of children in a Phase 3 trial were able to tolerate eating at least two peanuts (600 mg) without an allergic reaction, while 50 percent tolerated eating three to four peanuts (1,000 mg) without symptoms. At the start of the study, all of these children had allergic reactions after ingesting just 1/10 of a peanut (30 mg). These results of an international, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted at 66 sites, including Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
