Vaccine hope for food allergies

The recent success in vaccinations which alleviate or cure allergic reactions to peanuts and milk and wheat in dogs brings fresh hope that an effective treatment will also be developed for humans in the next 5 to 10 years. Avoidance for those with allergies can be difficult as many processed foods contain common allergens such as peanuts and milk products. 100 people die in the US annually from a severe allergic reaction to food. About 1-2% of adults and 8% of children under 8 suffer from food allergies.
