According to the report of the scientists of the Duke university medical centre and the university of Arkansas, the egg allergy in small children can be cured by the consumption of the same at a much higher quantity.//
According to Mr A.Wesley Burks statement, the following curable and meaningful therapy for egg allergic patients is suggested. He says that egg allergies significantly decreases the bodies resistance but the consumption of two scrambled eggs a day can increase the bodies resistance power to greater extent.
Egg allergy is one of the most common food allergies among children in the United States, Burks said. Just how many children are allergic to eggs is unclear, but the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases estimates that 6 percent to 8 percent of children have some type of food allergy. Most children outgrow egg allergy by age 5, but some people remain allergic for a lifetime.
The findings are reported in an advance online edition of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and will appear in the journal's January 2007 print edition.
The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and the two universities.
The study is the first in a series of studies on food allergy "desensitization" that are under way at Duke and the University of Arkansas. The goal, Burks said, is to offer food allergy sufferers protection from accidental ingestion of items that provoke reactions and, eventually, to induce complete or near-complete tolerance to those items.
Burks and his colleagues modeled the study on a commonly used method for treating seasonal allergy sufferers to alleviate symptoms. In this approach, called immunotherapy, physicians give patients shots containing small amounts of the troublesome allergen in an effort to build their tolerance to it. The therapy works on a cellular level to alter specific immune system cells, called lymphocytes, that play a pPage: 1 2 3 Related medicine news :1
