The Peanut Patch
Today I learned about the Peanut Patch.
With today being Halloween kids with peanut allergies are on red alert. But the Viaskin Peanut Patch is currently being tested by biopharmaceutical company DBV Technologies as a potential way of protecting people with peanut allergies from allergic reactions.
The Patch is applied to the arm or between the shoulder blades and gradually delivers small amounts of peanut protein through the skin, helping the wearer to build up a tolerance.
