Weigh Pros and Cons of Palforzia for Peanut Allergy
You’ll hear about Palforzia, the first FDA-approved option for peanut allergy desensitization.
It doesn’t allow patients to freely eat peanut products. But it may minimize an allergic reaction from accidental exposure.
Palforzia is a peanut allergen powder given orally in increasing doses to patients 4 to 17 years old. It’s an alternative to peanut oral immunotherapy already being done by some specialists.
