What a big day! Anna ate her first peanut yesterday after 3 months of therapy. Way to go Anna!
Here is our latest OIT progress report:
We enrolled our first peanut OIT patient in June of 2017. We have now enrolled a total of 21 patients including 2 new starts last week with another new start pending later this week.
20 peanut, 1 milk, 0 egg.
11 completed and are now on a daily peanut maintenance of 2-8 peanuts a day.
2 have passed the 24 peanut challenge and can now freely eat peanut containing food whenever and wherever they’d like.
We have had 1 dropout (due to severe gastrointestinal symptoms).
Most have completed the therapy in 5-6 months while the range is from 4-8 months.
