Many different approaches have been taken to allergy treatments over the years. However, as you’ll see on www.dbv-technologies.com/en this French company has decided to take a different tack when it comes to tackling this modern-day scourge, which blights the lives of tens of millions of people in every country in the world.
One of the most redoubtable of our allergy enemies is peanut allergy. This allergy looms large, not just because nuts are a common ingredient in many of the processed foods we eat on a daily basis, but also because of its effects. Peanut allergies are responsible for hundreds of deaths every year – and many, many more admissions to A and E wards. You can find out more about DBV-Technologies’ very own peanut-specific solution, the Viaskin peanut patch, at http://www.dbv-technologies.com/en/viaskin-products/viaskin-peanut. This page will give you a run-down of the peanut patch’s development program.
The patch (pictured below) can also be used to treat other allergies, which grab the headlines less, but which nonetheless impact on the quality of life of many. Foremost amongst these is the Viaskin milk patch.
