  Description
Low Dose Peanut SLIT (Double Blind to Open Label) Subjects ingest peanut protein (glycerinated peanut allergenic extract) daily starting with 0.000165 mcg, followed by a build-up phase (escalating peanut doses every 2 weeks, achieving maintenance dose by 36 weeks). Thereafter, subjects are on a maximally tolerated maintenance dose (165 mcg to 1,386 mcg) for >= 8 weeks. After Week 44, subjects are given a 5,000 mg Oral Food Challenge (OFC) using peanut powder. Subjects/study staff are unblinded following this OFC and continue on an open label peanut protein maintenance dose of 1,386 mcg/day or may attempt escalation up to this dose. Subjects who at the Week 116 OFC are unable to consume >= 5,000 mg peanut powder or 10-fold the amount of peanut powder compared to the baseline OFC will discontinue study therapy. SLIT=Sublingual Immunotherapy
Placebo (DB) Crossed Over to High Dose Peanut SLIT (OL) Subjects ingest placebo (glycerin) daily beginning with a dose of 0.000165 mcg, followed by a build-up phase (escalating placebo doses every 2 weeks, achieving a maintenance dose by 36 weeks). Thereafter, subjects are on a maximally tolerated maintenance dose (165 mcg to 1,386 mcg) for >= 8 weeks. After Week 44, subjects are given a 5,000 mg Oral Food Challenge (OFC) using peanut powder. Subjects/study staff are unblinded following this OFC and subjects no longer receive placebo dosing but are crossed over and receive open label high dose peanut SLIT; the study procedures and schedule are the same as for the Low Dose Peanut SLIT group, the only difference is the maximum maintenance dose is almost 3-fold higher at 3,696 mcg/day. DB=Double Blind, SLIT=Sublingual Immunotherapy, OL=Open Label.

[1] The Atopic Dermatitis Total Score is scored on a 10 point scale of 0 to 9 where a higher score indicates increasing severity of atopic dermatitis. This score is a combination of three scores that range from 0 to 3 in the following areas: body surface area score, disease course, and disease intensity.
[2] Total amount of serum immunoglobulin E. Individuals who are not allergic may have a total IgE as high as 304 kU/L.
[3] Amount of serum peanut-specific immunoglobulin E. Individuals with a peanut IgE of <0.35 kUA/L are considered not to be sensitized to peanut.
[4] This score is calculated by subtracting the size of the saline wheal (in mm) from the size of the peanut wheal (in mm) observed for a skin prick test. Individuals with a peanut skin prick test score of < 3 mm are considered to have a negative result. 1 subject in the Placebo group did not have a value for this measure.
[5] Two subjects in the Placebo group did not have a value for this measure.

  Description
Low Dose Peanut SLIT Before Week 44 OFC (Double Blind) Subjects ingest peanut protein (glycerinated peanut allergenic extract) daily starting with 0.000165 mcg, followed by a build-up phase (escalating peanut doses every 2 weeks, achieving maintenance dose by 36 weeks). Thereafter, subjects are on a maximally tolerated maintenance dose (165 mcg to 1,386 mcg) for >= 8 weeks. After Week 44, subjects are given a 5,000 mg Oral Food Challenge (OFC) using peanut powder. Subjects/study staff are unblinded following this OFC and subjects continue on an open label peanut protein maintenance dose of 1,386 mcg/day or may attempt escalation up to this dose. SLIT=Sublingual Immunotherapy
Placebo Before Week 44 OFC (Double Blind) Subjects ingest placebo (glycerin) daily beginning with a dose of 0.000165 mcg, followed by a build-up phase (escalating placebo doses every 2 weeks, achieving a maintenance dose by 36 weeks). Thereafter, subjects are on a maximally tolerated maintenance dose (165 mcg to 1,386 mcg) for >= 8 weeks. After Week 44, subjects are given a 5,000 mg Oral Food Challenge (OFC) using peanut powder. Subjects/study staff are unblinded following this OFC and subjects no longer receive placebo dosing but are crossed over into the High Dose Peanut SLIT Crossover (Open Label) group. SLIT=Sublingual Immunotherapy
High Dose Peanut SLIT Crossover Before Wk44 Crossover OFC (OL) Subjects ingest open label peanut protein (glycerinated peanut allergenic extract) daily beginning with a dose of 0.000165 mcg, followed by a build-up phase (escalating peanut doses every 2 weeks, achieving a maintenance dose by 36 weeks). Thereafter, subjects are on a maximally tolerated maintenance dose (165 mcg to 3,696 mcg) for >= 8 weeks. After 44 weeks of open label SLIT, subjects are given a 5,000 mg Oral Food Challenge (OFC) using peanut powder. SLIT=Sublingual Immunotherapy
Low Dose Peanut SLIT (Double Blind to Open Label) After completion of the 5,000 mg Oral Food Challenge (OFC) at Week 44, subjects/study staff are unblinded and subjects continue on an open label peanut protein maintenance dose of 1,386 mcg/day or may attempt escalation up to this dose. Subjects who at their Week 116 Oral Food Challenge (OFC) are not able to consume at least 5,000 mg of peanut powder or 10-fold the amount of peanut powder compared to their baseline OFC will discontinue study therapy. SLIT=Sublingual Immunotherapy
Placebo (DB) Crossed Over to High Dose Peanut SLIT (OL) After 44 weeks of open label therapy, subjects are given a 5,000 mg Oral Food Challenge (OFC) using peanut powder. After completion of this Week 44 OFC, subjects then either continue on their peanut protein maintenance dose of 3,696 mcg per day or are allowed to attempt escalation up to this dose. Subjects who at their Week 116 Oral Food Challenge (OFC) are not able to consume at least 5,000 mg of peanut powder or 10-fold the amount of peanut powder compared to their baseline OFC will discontinue study therapy.
