Researchers are working on new medications to treat allergies by targeting the body's immune system.
The hope with these treatments is to lessen the responses to an allergen, so instead of really intense reactions, you can take an accidental bite of a peanut-butter laced sandwich and survive.
We asked executives at Aimmune, a company developing an allergy treatment, if there's a chance that we could cure food allergies.
A potentially fatal peanut allergy was switched off when scientists tricked the immune system to no longer treat nut proteins as a threat to the body, researchers from Northwestern Medicine reported in the Journal of Immunology. The...
Scientists have discovered a protein that plays a key role in the body's inflammation response to allergens and worms. The protein regulate genes without changing their DNA.
(Cornell University) By learning how a recently discovered immune cell works in the body, researchers hope to one day harness the cells to better treat allergies and infections, according to new Cornell University research.
Researchers have turned off a life-threatening allergic response to peanuts by tricking the immune system into thinking the nut proteins aren't a threat to the body, according to a new preclinical study. The peanut tolerance was ach...
