Researches gave children with the allergy a probiotic with a peanut protein daily for 18 months.
A lead researcher told BBC News that it's the first time a treatment for the allergy was shown to be effective for such a long period of time. She said the main takeaway is that children who had an allergy were able to eat them the same as children who do not have an allergy, and that over time they remained tolerant of the previous allergen.

In fact for the last two years, it's gotten a test run in Iowa and with the favorable results, they're looking to expand there as well as in states like Colorado, Louisiana, Maryland and Virginia.
