The original trial gave a probiotic containing a peanut protein to children for a period of 18 months. The first batch of results, in 2013, found 82 per cent of children who received the immunotherapy were tolerant to peanuts.

Four years later, around 80 per cent of the children can still eat peanuts as part of their normal diet without a reaction – showing the treatment has a “long lasting effect”.

So it's a probiotic-based treatment. Interesting!
