Gradual exposure to peanut protein powder over six months helped more than half of children with peanut allergies tolerate the equivalent of about 10 peanuts per day, according to the results of a clinical trial.

The trial also found that the overwhelming majority of kids who tested the experimental therapy were able to eat the equivalent of about five peanuts each day without allergic reaction. This led to significant improvements in the quality of life for the families of these children, according to a report published Thursday by the Lancet.
