Threshold Dose for Peanut: Risk Characterization Based Upon Diagnostic Oral Challenge of a Series of 286 Peanut-Allergic Individuals

Clinical records of 286 consecutive patients reacting positively with objective symptoms to double-blind, placebo-controlled oral peanut challenges at University Hospital, Nancy, France were examined for individual no observed adverse effect levels (NOAELs) and lowest observed adverse effect levels (LOAELs). This study was published in Food and Chemical Toxicology (2010;48:814-819).
