Lately, Dr. Gordon Sussman has been thinking a lot about food — peanuts, mostly, sometimes shellfish, but mostly peanuts.

Sussman has run allergy and immunization clinics in Toronto for nearly 30 years. He’s a professor of medicine at the University of Toronto and one of the founders of Anaphylaxis Canada, a severe allergy education program. He was the first researcher to recognize and report latex allergies in the late 1980s. But now he’s thinking about peanuts.

His current research focuses on long-term treatment for severe food allergies with a particular focus on desensitizing allergy patients. Peanuts are one of the most common causes of anaphylaxis – a severe and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. About 1.5 per cent of the population have a severe peanut allergy, according to Sussman.
