DBV Technologies (Euronext:DBV;Nasdaq:DBVT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, announced that an oral abstract evaluating differences in the immune profile of healthy human skin across different body areas was presented by Dr. Ester Del Duca, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, at the 3rd Inflammatory Skin Disease Summit (ISDS) in Vienna, Austria, December 12-15, 2018.

As quoted in the press release:

The study results have important implications for treating immunological disorders, such as food allergies, with epicutaneous immunotherapy (EPIT). For food allergies, EPIT is designed to target specific skin immune cells in order to desensitize patients to allergens. In the study presented, of the four body sites studied, the upper back region showed the highest up-regulation of Th2/Th17 pathway genes and regulatory T cells, which are important targets for preventing allergic reactions. The findings support the use of the Company’s investigational Viaskin Peanut treatment for peanut allergy at the inter-scapular region of the upper back due to the local immune profile of the skin.

“We are proud to support leading research that helps characterize the significant potential of the skin as the largest immune organ and contributes to our growing understanding of how to best treat food allergies and other immunological diseases,” said Dr. Hugh Sampson, Chief Scientific Officer of DBV Technologies and Kurt Hirschhorn Professor of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “The data presented at ISDS 2018 suggest that the specific immune environment of the skin on the back has the greatest potential to induce immunotolerance in patients with food allergies compared with other areas of the body explored in this study.  Such data help ensure that novel treatments are optimized in the real-world and further support the therapeutic benefit that children with peanut allergy may receive from treatment with Viaskin Peanut, which is applied directly to the upper back.”
