Egg allergies have deprived many children from their favorite dishes like quiche, omelettes and pasta but researchers have bought some good news for all of them. Scientists are claiming to have developed an effective exposure therapy, with the help of which they say that children with egg allergies can also enjoy their favorite tastes.
Researchers ran the therapy over some youngsters and then fed them with small amounts of egg. They noticed that a quarter of children lost their allergy altogether whereas some others showed higher tolerance to exposure to eggs.
The new therapy is oral immunotherapy, in which the experts explain to prepare the immune system and make it efficient enough to tolerate something with increasingly growing exposures but in very small quantities.
The findings have given a hope that the therapy can give similar benefits in cases suffering from milk and peanut allergies too. But yes, children should not try to attempt the therapy outside strictly controlled research conditions because the therapy has been just discovered, warns researchers from the John Hopkins Children's Center.
The findings of the above study were published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Robert Wood said: "More than a quarter of the children in our study lost their egg allergies altogether, but we also saw dramatic improvements in those who didn't, which in and of itself is an important therapeutic achievement".
