As a new parent, your child’s health is tremendously important to you. At http://www.dbv-technologies.com/en there is a range of products under development which could become vital elements in the fight against some of the most frightening medical conditions that children can suffer from – allergies.
Allergies have become much more widespread in recent years, especially in Europe and North America. Children are often disproportionately affected, and even mild allergies can cause anxiety to both children and parents. One of the most prevalent allergies affects up to 2% or even 3% of babies and young children – cow’s milk protein. Although most kids thankfully lose their sensitivity to this allergen in later life, it can still be very unpleasant while it lasts. Common symptoms include rashes, diarrhoea and vomiting. The most frightening symptom of all, though, is the risk of anaphylaxis. DBV-Technologies has a specific solution that targets this particular allergy.
