Le saviez-vous? L’immunothérapie orale pour traiter les allergies alimentaires n’est pas un traitement expérimental. Plus de 125 études ont été publiées à ce jour, dont 38 nouvelles cette année seulement. Voici ce que Dr. Kari Nadeau, à la tête de Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research at Stanford University a à dire sur le sujet suite à leur 8+ années d’étude (la plus grande étude sur l’OIT jamais réalisé):
“For everyone who has stayed in the study, the treatment has been 100 percent successful,” says Nadeau. “It turns out that everyone’s immune system is capable of adapting — and surprisingly, it is as true of adults as children.” She and her team now have an eight-year study of OIT — the longest record in the United States — in which they found that everyone who was compliant with the treatment and continued to eat the foods has kept their allergies from returning.
Children with severe food allergies and their families live with constant worry — any mistake could be fatal, and no effective therapy for the problem existed. That's changing.
