What is Palforzia?

Palforzia [Peanut (Arachis hypogaea) Allergen Powder-dnfp] is an FDA-approved (Food and Drug Administration) medication manufactured by Aimmune Therapeutics, Inc.

Palforzia is oral immunotherapy for the treatment of allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, that may occur with accidental exposure to peanuts.

Palforzia is approved for use in patients with a confirmed diagnosis of peanut allergy. Peanut allergies are one of the most common food allergies in the world, affecting more than 1.6 million children and teens in the United States alone.

Initial dose escalation may be given to patients aged 4 to 17 years of age. Up-dosing and maintenance treatment may be continued in patients 4 years of age and older. Palforzia is to be used in combination with a peanut-avoidant diet.

It is only available through the Palforzia Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program with a certified healthcare provider.

What doses of Palforzia are available?

Palforzia is in capsule or powder for oral administration form, in the following doses: 0.5 mg 1 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg, and 100 mg Capsules or 300 mg Sachets.

Take Palforzia as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and medication guides. Your doctor may occasionally change your dosing levels. Always speak with your allergist about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Palforzia contains peanuts (Arachis hypogaea) which gives children with a peanut allergy controlled exposure to precise amounts of peanut protein every day. This may help them decrease their sensitivity to small amounts of peanuts over time.
