Interesting Research on Allergies

Take a look at the article New discovery may lead to new class of allergy drugs from e! Science News. It's about a study on allergic reactions from scientists at Queen's University of Belfast, University of Oxford and Trinity College Dublin; they say it may help in the development of new allergy drugs.

Very interesting, thanks for sharing!

This is interesting. I wish they would note when such treatment would be available, though if they've just discovered this, it could be years of testing before it is deemed safe for people.

Though did you hear of a peanut vaccine that is supposed to be available sometime in the next couple of years? I need to pinpoint the source of that one.

I have heard about that vaccine, but can't recall where. Several places, I think. Our allergist, Dr. Young, says 5 to 10 years still.
