This is awesome.... One area I see a market for you is seeds.... They are a great alternative to nuts, but it is very difficult to find them not processed the same facility as peanuts and treenuts. So far all we can find reliably is sunflower seeds.

AWESOME!!! I know that SLIT is awesome for environmental allergies. My almost 6 yr old daughter has been getting treatment for her enviros for 2 years, and has made unbelievable progress, and even lost a few lesser allergies, while all are so amazingly better I can barely believe it! (We observe the results in real life, not just with testing. She can now play in grass w/out head to toe hives!!!) I do think that SLIT will be a viable option for some food allergies. What exciting news!

I will be watching this like a hawk...My son has had the peanut allergy all his life along with non verbal autism...getting rid of this allergy is hugely important to me due to him someday living in a group home type setting and not having to worry about the staff feeding him the wrong thing and killing him....the autism I can handle...its not going to kill him, but the peanuts will.
