3/19/2015:  Infant Colic and Food Allergies

3/12/2015:  ARC Finances Food Allergy Treatment

Allergen Research Corporation ('ARC'), announced the completion of an $80 million financing for a treatment for peanut, egg and milk allergies.  ARC develops treatments for food allergies using oral desensitization by combining standardized, pharmaceutical-grade food allergens with controlled up-dosing protocols to desensitize patients and increase the thresholds at which they could experience allergic reactions. [3]
