Peanut allergies affect many Americans each year, but unfortunately, there is currently no cure for this allergy. Desensitization therapy is an option for patients who have a peanut allergy; some of the methods are oral, sublingual, and epicutaneous therapies, all of which have been shown to be effective, but with varying degrees and risks of adverse events. It is important to examine these risk and benefit profiles to help find the best available option for patients. A comparison will be made of three common methods to evaluate the safest and the most effective treatment to help better guide patients for therapy options in the future.
