Newswise: New FDA-Approved Oral Immunotherapy Marks Important Milestone in Peanut Allergy Management

New FDA-Approved Oral Immunotherapy Marks Important Milestone in Peanut Allergy Management

Nuvance Health

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Palforzia, a peanut powder product designed to help reduce peanut-induced allergic reactions. Although Palforzia just received FDA approval, Nuvance Health allergists/immunologists have been offering oral immunotherapy (OIT) for various food allergies for five years. By slowly increasing a person’s tolerance to an allergen over time, OIT can lower the risk of having a severe allergic reaction. This lowered risk may help reduce anxiety for kids with food allergies, as well as their family members and caregivers.
