There are few things that are more frightening for children or adults than the physical reaction brought on by an allergy. What’s more, the number of children suffering from allergies, especially peanut allergies, has grown almost exponentially in recent years, with the proportion of kids suffering from peanut allergy having increased four-fold between 1997 and 2008! is a great place to start for anyone who’s interested in finding out more about how they can treat or even diagnose this problem. For example, there’s lots of information about safe allergy treatment on the DBV technologies website. At the heart of DBV’s approach to beating allergies is a rather unassuming looking patch. Appearances can be deceptive, though – this patch, the VIASKIN®, can deliver immunoactive compounds to the body’s immune system through the skin, as its name suggests! The advantage of this is that it is now possible to expose the immune system to very tiny quantities of food antigens without any risk of these antigens getting into the bloodstream. This offers a safe and totally painless way of enabling the body to build up a tolerance for the proteins that would otherwise have triggered severe allergic reactions.
