Quote:
An idea hatched in a Streeterville pub by two guys sitting over a couple of Friday night beers has led to a treatment that could someday overcome the peanut allergy, a growing and sometimes fatal problem that has bedeviled parents, schools and airlines.
Quote:
If their peanut allergy treatment works on humans, he said it's likely their method also could be applied to the burgeoning list of food allergies and to autoimmune diseases.

Quote:
"We're probably looking at three to five years before we try it on human patients," he said of the peanut allergy treatment.
