Aimmune Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: AIMT), a biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing treatments for potentially life-threatening food allergies, today announced that findings from APPEAL-2 (Allergy to Peanuts ImPacting Emotions And Life-2), the largest cross-sectional, pan-European, qualitative study to evaluate the psychosocial burden of living with peanut allergy, were published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy, the official journal of the British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology. The study highlights the substantial impact of peanut allergy (PA) on the lives of children, teenagers, and their caregivers. The study demonstrates how coping and management of PA are driven by fear of accidental exposure and reaction to peanut, and the resulting emotional, social, relationship, and work effects.
“In their own words, children, teens and their caregivers revealed the day-to-day difficulties of living with peanut allergy and how the lack of societal awareness impacts their emotional and social development, thereby suggesting a widespread need for improved quality of peanut allergy health management and education,” said Audrey DunnGalvin, Ph.D., an investigator on both the APPEAL-1 and APPEAL-2 projects and a lecturer in the School of Applied Psychology at University College Cork in Cork, Ireland. “These findings reinforce what we learned from the quantitative data generated from the APPEAL-1 study and provide further insight for clinicians and policymakers on the significant needs among these allergic individuals and their caregivers throughout Europe.”.
