A new study published in the Scientific Reports journal, reveals a team of chemical and biomolecular engineers from the University of Notre Dame, have developed a new test to accurately detect and identify the presence and strength of peanut allergies, without having to expose the patients to the allergen. The team designed nanoparticles – which they have named 'nanoallergens' – that mimic natural allergens by displaying each allergic component one at a time on their surfaces. The nanoallergens are used to dissect the critical components of major peanut allergy proteins, and evaluate the potency of the allergic response using the antibodies…
