system? >> that is exactly how it works. it puts the peanut protein into their system. it gets absorbed through the skin. when that happens, they end up having allergic reactions if it is a big. but they have looked into this patch giving them small doses. this is the part they are allergic to. in some cases, it can kill them because they have such severe allergies. but regulated on a daily basis, they increase the amount over time. they found out that over one year's time, the patients were able to tolerate more peanuts to the point were able to tolerate ten times the amount of peanuts that they could not tolerate when they first started the study. this is a two and a half year study. they went into find in the results -- find out the results. i think it surprised them how successful it was. half the people were able to tolerate more peanut proteins that got the patch. the ones that were treated the most that had the most success were 4-11 -year-olds.
>> this is very encouraging. so many people have this problem. if we get to a point where this patch is available for the people with the most severe allergies does with this be the most geared towards -- would this be the most geared towards? >> children can have serious life-threatening reactions when they are allergic to peanuts. the reactions can come on quickly. these children, the people around them give them peanuts. the problem is, sometimes there are peanut products they don't know about that they accidentally eat. or something was made in a pan that was not wash that well. a second thing was made that doesn't have peanuts but gets peanuts from the first times things were cooked there. so this can be life- threatening. something that have a hard time avoiding. so for those in particular, that is who the patch is geared for. the researchers here say it was
and worked best for those that were 4-11 years old. so we need larger studies before it is ready for prime time. this is giving a lot of hope to researchers, families and to particular people with food allergies. >> it is very exciting. that age is a difficult age. it sort of sounds a little bit like the allergy shot -- where you get these allergy shots on a regular basis to everything you are allergic to. and eventually, your immunity kicks in and you are not allergic >> that is exactly what it is like. the allergy shot -- getting the allergy drops under the tongue -- it is exactly like that. the difference is that this is very convenient and it gives a very regulated. what they have done is taken the patch and made the peanut protein in the patch so it gets absorbed into the skin on a regulated basis. that gets increased over time. it is one of those things they will be able to do at home. they can put the patch on every
and increase their tolerance. it will not cure them from peanut allergies. but it will allow them to get more peanuts in their body on an accidental basis without having that life-threatening reaction. it can save lives very quickly. >> heaven forbid, if you don't have an epipen close. >> thank you so much. always good to hear from you. the broncos running back cj anderson is getting a second medical opinion on a right knee injury. our broncos insider found out that anderson suffered the injury during the game monday night against the texans. they were hoping the injury is minor. but it is possible he could miss an extended period. either way, the broncos may be without the starting running back against the chargers. the cleveland indians are hoping to keep the winning coming in game two of the world series.
