Possible peanut allergy patch in works, slated for 2018
CNN — People with peanut allergies may eventually get some relief.
A small French bio-pharmaceutical company is working on a product to help allergy sufferers significantly increase their tolerance.
The drug would come in patch form, similar to a nicotine patch. The FDA recently approved special fast-track testing for the drug, which is called Viaskin Peanut.
The drug’s manufacturers hope to begin selling the product in early 2018 if all goes well.
