Peanut Skin Patch

6/15/2017: Peanut Skin Patch

A study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and led by by Hugh Sampson, MD, of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York found that after one year, "researchers assessed each participant’s ability to consume at least 10 times more peanut protein than he or she was able to consume before starting EPIT...The patches were developed and provided by the biopharmaceutical company DBV Technologies under the trade name Viaskin. Each day, study participants applied a new patch to their arm or between their shoulder blades."
