Volunteers were separated into two groups for comparison. The first group of 96 children received peanut protein powder every day, increasing the dose to six peanuts a day, while the others received a placebo made from oatmeal.

Of all the patients, 20 children who received the peanut powder showed remission of the allergy, being able to consume doses of up to 16 peanuts daily without showing any symptoms.

One child in the comparison group also demonstrated disease remission. Another 20 children were considered desensitized because they had a higher allergic threshold, but could not be considered in remission.

"Very early interventions may provide the best opportunity to achieve remission," said study co-author Stacie Jones, explaining that younger children had the greatest remission.
