USA: Mayo Clinic to advance awareness and research for peanut allergy
Peanut and tree nut allergy can be a serious condition that affects approximately three million Americans. There is no cure for peanut allergy, merely symptomatic relief, and there is a lack of public and medical understanding of the condition. Mayo Clinic in Rochester has joined with six other leading medical research centers from across the country to form the Centers for Peanut Allergy Awareness with the purpose of helping to increase understanding of peanut allergy. The medical research centers are currently conducting a peanut allergy study designed to determine if an investigational drug can lessen the severity of an allergic reaction in sufferers. Rochester, Minneapolis and St. Paul-area peanut allergy sufferers, ages 12 to 60, are being sought for participation. Those interested in more information can call toll free 1-877-316-7865 or visit
