The analysis of the data shows that two-thirds of children less than 12 years old reach the efficacy endpoints after 18-month treatment with Viaskin Peanut 100 µg. The serological response observed over the period was robust and strong, implying efficacy of the ongoing desensitization process..

n the active group (28 subjects), the 12- and 18-month data shows consistent and sustained improvement across the study population, with 20% and 40% of subjects respectively consuming at least 10 times more peanut protein than at the beginning of the trial (defined as 'success' or 'responders'). The preliminary 6-month data released in June 2012 was partially validated after database cleaning; serological results were fully confirmed while no statistical difference appeared anymore in the treated versus placebo groups at food challenge. After 6-month treatment, the analysis (pooled on 50 subjects) shows that 5 children multiplied by at least 10-fold the cumulated reactive dose of peanut proteins compared to baseline versus 2 children in the placebo group (26 subjects). ... -17033601/
