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.
