DBV-Technologies – helping make the world a better place for allergy sufferers!

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.

The growth in the incidence of allergies has been noticeable in recent years. Widespread allergies take in both edible substances e.g. peanuts, and non-edible, e.g. house dust mites.

DBV Technologies is now leading the way in combatting certain allergies through the Viaskin Patch (http://www.dbv-technologies.com/en/viaskin-technology/viaskin-patch).

The Viaskin platform is a patch which works upon application to the skin. The principal features of the patch are made up of its adhesive crown next to the skin and a titanium backing.

The theory behind the Viaskin patch is surprisingly simple. An antigen is sprayed onto the patch using electrospray technology. This creates an even layer of dry antigens.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.
