The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of AR101 through reduction in clinical reactivity to peanut allergen in peanut-allergic children and adults.


This is an international, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of the efficacy and safety of AR101 in a characterized desensitization oral immunotherapy regimen in peanut-allergic individuals.
