"There are no efficacious approaches to treating noncompressible hemorrhage," Huston said. "That's really the problem.

FDA Approves First Drug To Treat Peanut Allergies In Children
(CNN) — The US Food and Drug Administration approved the first drug to treat peanut allergies in children on Friday, following an advisory committee vote of approval in September. The drug, Palforzia, can be used for children between 4 and 17 years old.

Children are left attempting to avoid exposure to peanuts to avoid reactions. Though that will continue to be necessary with Palforzia, the risk of a reaction will be lessened, says ...
