Peanut Allergy: Jayden's Story

Jayden Johnson had his first life-threatening allergic reaction to peanut at just 13 months old. From then on, avoiding any products containing peanut became a full-time job for his family. Then Jayden signed up to take part in a clinical trial for a new treatment to potentially help him build up a tolerance to peanut. The treatment worked.
