Sydney: Researchers now have a clue as to why peanuts trigger life-threatening allergic reactions, a finding that potentially opens the way to avert such outcomes.
"If we can prevent the peanut allergens from reacting with the antibodies, we believe we can prevent or reduce the allergic reaction from occurring in the first place. "We have recently been successful in identifying a substance that significantly blocks, or inhibits, the interaction between human antibodies and the major peanut allergens." "Now we are working to better understand this inhibitor and how we can enhance its ability to block or reduce peanut allergy reactions," concludes Suphioglu. Suphioglu said that the work being done by his team also has potential benefits for all allergy sufferers, according to a Deakin release. IANS
