MARIA: WELCOME BACK. APPROXIMATELY 15 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE FOOD ALLERGIES. PEANUT ALLERGIES ARE THE MOST COMMON, WITH MORE THAN 3 MILLION PEOPLE AFFECTED BY PEANUT ALLERGY. ABOUT HALF OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE CHILDREN. ANILER JAY TO PEANUTS — AN ALLERGY TO PEANUTS CAN CAUSE POTENTIALLY SIDE EFFECTS. THERE IS A NEW MEDICINE TO HELP THOSE WITH PEANUT ALLERGIES. JOINING ME RIGHT NOW IS DR. JASON DALLAS. GOOD TO HAVE YOU ON THE PROGRAM THIS MORNING. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. WE WERE TALKING DURING THE BREAK, YOU WERE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET THE NOIN THE FDA — THE MEDICINE TO THE FDA BEFORE THE SHUT GLOWN WE SHUTDOLOWN WE SHUTDOWNWN WE SHUTDOWN.N WE>>WE GOT IT IN THE DAY BEFORE THE SHUTDOWN. WE’RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS. MARIA: THERE ARE VACCINATIONS ON THE MARKET, I GUESS. TELL ME HOW THIS IMMUNOTHERAPY WORKS. YOURS IS NOT A VACCINATION.>>IT’S NOT A VACCINATION. FOR FOOD ALLERGY THERE ISN’T ANYTHING AVAILABLE. THE DISCUSSION YOU HAVE WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN IS TRY TO AVOID THE FOOD AND HERE’S AN OPEN BY E THE FOOD AND HERE’S AN OPEN BY I THE FOOD AND HERE’S AN OPEN BY E THE FOOD AND HERE’S AN OPEN BY . WE’RE IN 2019 AND THERE ISN’T ANY SOLUTION FOR FOOD ALLERGIES. MARIA: YOU’RE RIGHT.>>THIS IS AN APPROACH THAT’S BEEN AROUND FOR A VERY LONG TIME. THE CONCEPT OF CHALLENGING THE BODY WITH EVER-INCREASING DOSES OF THE THING YOU’RE ALLERGIC TO SO THAT SOMETHING THAT WAS FOREIGN BECOMES FRIENDLY TO THE BODY IF YOU LIKE. MARIA: SORT OF LIKE A FLU SHOT.>>MORE LIKE ANILER JAY SHOT. FOLKS GET — LIKE AN ALLERGY SHOT. THIS IS FOOD. FOOD ALLERGY COMES FROM THE GUT. THE GUT’S AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, AND IT CREATES THE ALLERGY IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT’S A SIMILAR IDEA. WHAT YOU’RE DOING IS YOU’RE INGESTING, SWALLOWING A SMALL DOSE OF PEANUT AND INCREASE IT OVER TIME UNTIL YOU GET TO THE POINT WHERE THE BODY RECOGNIZES IT AS SOMETHING YOU SHOULDN’T REJECT. MARIA: PEANUT ALLERGIES CAN BE FOR LIFE. THIS COULD BE LIFE-TIME.>>CORRECT. 80% OF FOLKS DO NOT OUTGROW PEANUT ALLERGIES. IT’S THE ONE FOOD ALLERGY THAT MOST FOLKS DON’T OUTGROW. MOST OF THE OTHER FOOD ALLERGIES, YOU TEND TO HAVE IT WHEN YOU’RE A KID AND OUTGROW IT WHEN YOU GET OLDER. MARIA: A PORTION OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE THESE ALLERGIES WILL FIND THEMSELVES IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM.>>THERE’S DATA THAT WAS PUBLISHED TOWARDS THE END OF LAST YEAR, SUGGESTING THAT 25% OF FOLKS WHO HAVE PEANUTAL ALLERGIES WHO ARE ACTIVELY TRYING TO PREVENT GETTING ANY EXPOSURE WHATSOEVER TO PEANUTS,EN UP PEANUTS EN UP PEANUTS ENDUP PEANUTS END UP IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM EVERY YEAR. MARIA: WHAT’S THE PRICE OF THIS?>>WE’RE A WAYS AWAY FROM LAUNCHING. WE WOULD NOT BE A GREAT COMPANY IF WE DEVELOPED SOMETHING THAT WOULD REWRITE MEDICAL TEXTBOOKS AND DIDN’T MAKE IT ACCESS TO PATIENTS THAT NEED IT. ACCESS IS KEY FOR US. WE’LL MAKE SURE WE CAN GET IT TO PATIENTS WHO NEED IT. MARIA: YOU WERE LUCKY TO GET THE FILING IN BEFORE THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. WHEN WOULD YOU EXPECT THIS TO COME TO MARKET?>>WE GOT OUR FILING IN JUST BEFORE FDA SHUTDOWN. THEY SAID STUFF THAT WENT IN BEFORE THEY SHUT DOWN, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO REVIEW. THAT BEING SAID, IT’S UNCLEAR HOW THAT WILL IMPACT THE TIME LINE. UNDER A NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCE, WE WOULD BE BRINGING THIS TO MARKET ABOUT THE THIRD QUARTER, JUST AFTER THE SUMMER OF THIS YEAR. MARIA: OH, WOW, THAT’S QUICK.>>THAT’S PRETTY QUICK. IT’S EXCITEING TO HAVE A REAL SOLUTION IN THE MARKET. MARIA: HAVE YOU GOTTEN A LOT OF RESPONSE FROM PEOPLE?>>THERE’S A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF EXCITEMENT ABOUT THIS. THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM. IT’S BEEN AROUND FOR A VERY LONG TIME. ACTUALLY, HAVING SOMETHING THAT WORKS OUT THERE IS REALLY EXCITING. MARIA: IT REALLY IS. WE’LL BE WATCHING THAT. GREAT TO SEE YOU, DR. JASON DALLAS. THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH.

  1. I know I know! Stop vaccinating your kids! Check out the recommended 2018 vaccine list. Then compare to when you were a kid. Shocking I know. Research because in this day of information, ignorance isn't acceptable when your kids life is on the line.

  2. So many food allergies so many vacuous paranoid parents. Connected. Peanut is a root vegetable so why not potatoes too? A few genuine allergic the rest blame the parents. No one used to have allergies.

  3. I never even heard of peanut allergies when I was a kid. How did this suddenly pop up in the last couple decades?

  4. The Progressive future…Between 1997-2011 children’s food allergies have gone up 50%…….and forget about how many Homosexuals they’ve killed by refusing to allow a quarantine of HIV patients……Pardon me if I never want a National Socialist to keep me “safe & healthy”…

  5. how about not putting peanut oil in vaccines which is what is causing the peanut allergy to begin with! love how they give you illnesses to sell you the cures
