Wainwright analyst Andrew Fein spent time with "leading" key opinion leaders in food allergy at this year's American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology meeting to talk about the oral immunotherapy from Aimmune Therapeutics (AIMT) and epicutaneous
immunotherapy from DBV Technologies (DBVT).
sensitisation to aeroallergens has been thought to be responsible, with subsequent migration of sensitised T cells into the nose and airways, causing upper and lower airway disease.
If you choose to perform patch testing, the hypothetical detection rate of the Thin-Layer Rapid Use Epicutaneous
Triclosan promotes epicutaneous
sensitization to peanut in mice.
To date, most phase III studies for the treatment of peanut allergy have involved oral immunotherapy and epicutaneous
immunotherapy, but SLIT has been studied for the past 10 years or so, according to Dr.
The treatment is based on epicutaneous
immunotherapy (EPIT), which is a proprietary technology platform that can deliver biologically active compounds to the immune system through the skin.
The treatment, called epicutaneous
immunotherapy or EPIT, was safe and well-tolerated, and nearly all participants used the skin patch daily as directed.
The year-end report from an ongoing clinical trial has provided evidence that peanut allergies can be helped by a treatment that uses a patch that delivers small amounts of peanut protein through the skin - referred to as epicutaneous
immunotherapy or EPIT.
The patients in many reported cases later tested positive for chlorhexidine induced hypersensitivity reaction by means of intradermal, scratch, and epicutaneous
tests (43, 45, 47, 48).
An anaesthetic lidocaine/prilocaine cream (EMLA) for epicutaneous
application tested for cutting split skin graft.
Value of epicutaneous
patch testing in patients with oral, mucosal lesions of lichenoid character.
Lymphomatoid contact dermatitis: a syndrome produced by epicutaneous
hypersensitivity with clinical features and a histopathologic picture similar to that of mycosis fungoides.
