Our product for the treatment of Egg allergy.
Hen's egg allergy is one of the most common food allergies in children.
Egg-allergic reactions are mostly cutaneous in nature, including skin rashes and hives, and typically occur within 30 minutes of egg contact or ingestion. Gastrointestinal problems, such vomiting, and respiratory complications, such as nasal congestion, are also common, but anaphylaxis is not often reported. Food allergy experts believe that about one third of eczema patients react to food triggers, which can sometimes cause the eczema to worsen. The most common food allergen associated with eczema is egg.

We are developing Viaskin® Egg as a potential treatment that we believe can reduce the clinical manifestations of hen’s egg allergy.
Studies also suggest that the treatment of egg allergy in young children may have a significant impact on preventing the occurrence and development of eczema
Pre-clinical work is ongoing for this product candidate with the the goal of initiating a clinical program if these studies are successful.
