What is PALFORZIA? PALFORZIA is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to help reduce the severity of allergic reactions to peanuts, including anaphylaxis, in children aged 4 through 17.
How does it work? Your child will be given small, consistent, precise amounts of peanut protein every day. The dose will slowly be increased every couple of weeks during visits to our office for about 6 months. After completing this phase, your child will start taking a maintenance dose every day over time to help maintain their decreased sensitivity to peanut allergens.
