Overview

The prevalence of food allergy has been increasing, especially among children, with nearly 1 in 13 children in the United States being impacted. Peanut allergy, in particular, has attracted growing attention in recent years as it has become increasingly common. Despite this, there are no approved treatments specifically for food allergy, and standard immunotherapy has limitations. This CME activity will assess the latest clinical evidence regarding new or late-stage oral immunotherapy options for peanut allergy management and will feature the most recent data from the 2019 European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Congress.

Target Audience

The intended audience for the activity is allergists, immunologists, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with peanut allergy.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Assess the latest clinical evidence regarding new or late-stage oral immunotherapy options for peanut allergy management.
  • Review the potential impact of raising the peanut allergen threshold on patient quality of life and/or the need for emergent care.
