As we have been discussing, the patients who consumed peanut in the LEAP trial ate "6g of peanut protein per week, distributed in three or more meals per week, until they reached 60 months of age." Do you think that this quantity and the frequency of ingestion of peanut played an important role in the outcome of the study? Would eating less peanut, less frequently, or not eating peanut at all for a prolonged period of time have resulted in a diminished effect?
