Oral Immunotherapy Shows Promise as Treatment for Egg Allergy

NIH-Funded Study Suggests that Egg Therapy Helps Children Overcome Their Allergies

From NIAID: "Eating daily doses of egg-white powder may treat egg allergy, according to an NIH study. After 24 months, researchers found that some children could eat eggs and egg-containing foods without the fear of an allergic reaction." NOTE: This is not something to do at home! This form of desensitization is being researched and studied.
