Authors’ conclusions: children under 4 years of age allergic to peanuts who received oral allergen immunotherapy exhibited greater desensitization and achieved remission more frequently. Thus, there seems to be a window of opportunity for desensitization to desensitized to peanuts in this age range.
Reviewers’ commentary: immunotherapy proved effective in achieving desensitization and remission in children allergic to peanuts aged 1 to 4 years. This effect was more evident in the younger children and in children with lower levels of immunological markers.
