Severe Allergy

Severe allergy can be the cause of pediatric and adult fatalities,  the majority of which are due to accidental exposure in patients with known allergies and to the absence of well-established therapies. Taken together, severe allergies represent a public health issue and a great unmet medical need. Peanut allergy, for example, is a common cause of anaphylaxis in children arriving in emergency rooms. There is no satisfactory therapy to prevent or reverse these types of severe allergies apart from epinephrine during emergencies.
