Interview with Dr. Wesley Burks
A fellow mom/blogger of food allergic children recently had the opportunity to interview Dr. Burks. She has an informative website, www.allergymoms.com and a blog at http://www.allergymoms.com/modules/wordpress/index.php. Here is the link to her interview with Dr. Burks. It gives a great overview of the immunotherapy clinical trials, some results they've seen, next steps, etc. There's more information on the oral immunotherapy trials (peanut flour) than the sublingual (drops that Abigail takes) because that was the original trial, and they have 5 plus years of data. Our doctor for the sublinugal trial has submitted a paper and hopes that it will be published soon. We're looking forward to reading about the current successes of the sublingual study. It's neat to know that Abigail's data is a part of those results.
