Thanks Sid,
     I didn't see it on NBC, but did hear it on NPR and in the
newspaper. It will be years before it is approved, they have to settle a
couple of law suits before they proceed with testing. A very interesting
development. Thanks for the heads up.
Sincerely,
Kimberly Herbert

This is really for Kim Herbert, but I'm not sure she's still on the
list,
if anyone has contact with her, please let her know. I saw on the TV on
the NBC nightly news that there is an antibody treatment for people
allergic to peanuts so that they can live a normal life. They take a
shot
every month and it allows a small quantity of peanut consumption to not
be
life-threatening--it knocks out the IGE part of their immune system that
causes the problem. I don't think it's out for the general public, but
it
was tested at the Jewish Hospital in NYC. She can probably contact NBC
for further info. Sid
