Thanks to one company’s efforts, there may be light at the end of the tunnel for sufferers of a number of allergies:see this page to discover why.

Increasing numbers of individuals suffer from one or more allergy. Frequently-occuring allergies take in both edible substances e.g. peanuts, and non-edible, e.g. house dust mites.

DBV Technologies and its epicutaneous patch, Viaskin, now offer real hope for change for allergy sufferers.

The Viaskin platform is a patch which works upon application to the skin. The main features of the patch include an electrostatically-charged backing and an adhesive crown.

The concept underpinning this epicutaneous patch is surprisingly simple. Using an electrospray, miniscule quantities of an allergen are sprayed upon the patch backing.An ultra-moisturizing ‘condensation chamber’ formed between patch and skin allows these protein compounds to reach the tolerogenic Langerhans cells, where they begin the work of gradually desensitizing the body to these antigens.
