Do peanut allergies have you living in fear? They don’t have to.

Protecting yourself or someone you love from peanuts and an allergic reaction from accidental exposure shouldn’t be a daily challenge. This is why the physicians at Palos Verdes Medical Group are conducting a cutting-edge clinical trial of a new treatment that may alleviate some of the burden caused by peanut allergy. This new trial is one of the first of its kind in the country, and you or a loved one may be able to take part!

We invite children ages 6 to 17 with a peanut allergy to see if they qualify for this trial. The primary purpose of this trial is to determine the effectiveness of an investigational medication for helping the body naturally lessen the severity of its reaction to peanuts.

Please contact Jordan Wertheimer, the director of research of our research facility, if you are interested in participating or if you would like additional details. Jordan and our PVMG physicians are happy to answer any questions you may have. To reach Jordan directly, please call Peninsula Research Associates at 310-265-1623 extension 321.
