A couple of weeks ago we announced the first five videos in a multi-part series on the topic, "A cure for milk allergies?" The health and science blog for Children's Hospital Boston has put together this video series to document the first milk exposure desensitization trial in the United States.
This week we are pleased to announce the final three videos in the series, which includes the results of the milk desensitization trial. Could there be a potential "cure" for severe food allergies? Let's find out ..
Part 6: At school with Brett Nasuti – In this installment, we go to school with Brett. He's taken it upon himself to educate his classmates by organizing an annual Food Allergy awareness week at his school, during which he's raising money for food allergy research.
Part 7: Cooking at home with the Nasutis – In this chapter, Robyn Nasuti shares her tips on keeping her kitchen safe- no small feat, given that two out of her three kids have severe food allergies. She also shows how she's simplified home-made pizza night at her house.
Part 8 (the final chapter): Will Brett be cured of his milk allergy? – In the last video in of the series, Brett finds out if he passes the final milk challenge in the study- which culminates in him drinking a full 8-ounce glass of milk- and if he's cured. If he passes the challenge, there's an enormous pizza party in store for him.
