For parents, their child’s health is of paramount importance. A major worry in today’s world concerns the increasing incidence of food allergies that affect children. French company DBV-Technologies has been working on solutions that are designed to give you peace of mind when it comes to common food allergies affecting both children and adults, including peanut allergy and cow’s milk allergy. Go to www.dbv-technologies.com and you’ll get a better idea of the innovative approach that they’ve adopted.
What’s interesting about the company’s method (http://www.dbv-technologies.com/en/method/)
is its non-invasive nature. This has several main advantages. Firstly, the fact that the blood-skin barrier is not broken greatly reduces the risk of anaphylactic shock occurring during treatment. Secondly, it makes the treatment much less of an ordeal for young patients, because it’s not painful at all to administer.
One of the main focuses of DBV-Technologies’ attention has been on diagnosing and treating cow’s milk protein allergy. This is a very common occurrence in the very young, affecting 2 to 3% of infants and young children. It can cause significant distress to both parents and children and its effects include diarrhoea, vomiting and skin rashes.
