Peanut Allergy concerns for parents may be a thing of the past if this new peanut allergy patch works as expected. According to Parent Co., the DBV wearable patch is showing positive, early results in young children.
Key takeaways for parents about this peanut allergy patch:
- The patch takes away the need to train the immune system to tolerate peanuts.
- The company showed that 83 percent of children ages 6 to 11 who took part in the trial could eat 1,000 milligrams of peanuts without having an allergic reaction after wearing a patch for three years.
- The company is now focusing the phase III clinical trials on the six to 11-year-old age group.
- They are also in the process of launching the first trial for children ages one to three.
Results from these studies should be available by late 2017, and then the company plans to apply for FDA approval.
