Quote:
Blood from donors who snacked on peanuts apparently triggered a life-threatening reaction in a 6-year-old boy with a severe food allergy, researchers report.
The case study, believed to be the first of its kind, raises questions about whether allergens are transmitted by blood more often than anyone thinks. It's published in the latest issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
