SAN DIEGO – For pediatricians and health care providers looking for guidance on educating parents on how to prevent and manage peanut allergy, the NIH has made guidelines available through its website, Anthony S. Fauci, MD, MACP, director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases told Healio Family Medicine.

Earlier this year NIAID introduced new guidelines based on the findings of the LEAP Study that showed that early introduction of peanut product reduced infants risk of developing allergic reactions.
