Learning Early about Peanut Allergy

Dr. Bruce Mazer explains how the Learning Early about Peanut Allergy (LEAP) trial is changing our approach to peanut allergy. The study (published in NEJM 2015) found that infants (between 4−11 months) who consumed at least 6 grams of peanut per week were significantly less likely to develop an allergy by 5 years of age, compared to infants who avoided peanut entirely.
