Have you children who suffer from allergies? If so, you may want to hear more about what DBV Technologies (DBV Technologies.com) are doing to help kids in this position. This French firm is engaged in developing anti-allergy solutions that are safe and child-friendly. You can follow this link to read up about the products the company has already created with a view to treating the common pediatric allergy of Cows’ Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA). This particular allergy impacts a staggering 2 to 3% of babies and young children. It can cause rashes, vomiting, diarrhoea and, potentially, anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction).
The specific challenge that has always faced researchers trying to develop allergy treatments for children is how to administer those treatments. Children generally do not respond well to approaches that involve injections, and even administering oral drops can be tricky. This is where the Viaskin patch comes in. As you can see, it’s administered by application to the skin. It’s completely pain-free and non-messy and kids will soon forget they’re even wearing it! Although still currently in development, it’s definitely worth watching this space to see how this solution progresses!
