PEDIATRIC ALLERGIES

Allergy Facts

  • 40% of children have allergies

  • 90% of asthma is triggered by allergies

  • Severe shortage of pediatric allergists

  • The #1 national pediatrician concern

Scope of Problem

  • Allergies are a major cause of illness in the United States. Up to 60 million Americans, including millions of children, have some type of allergy

  • The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology estimates that up to 2 million, or 8%, of children in the United States are affected by food allergies. Eight foods account for most of those: cow's milk, eggs, fish and shellfish, peanuts and tree nuts, soy, and wheat

  • Allergies lead to about 2 million missed school days each year

Result of Problem

  • Most patients only treat symptoms​​​​​​ because standard testing and treatment are too traumatic and time consuming

  • Antihistamines, decongestants, inhalers, steroids are prescribed in the form of pills, eye drops, nasal Sprays

  • Americans spent $17.5 billion in 2010

  • Dreaded trips to the emergency room from various activities, such as an asthma attack during basketball in Spring, soccer in summer, or football in Fall

  • More than half of parents say seasonal allergies affect their children, with some unsure how to choose the right medicine and 1 in 7 giving allergy medicine labeled for adults 

Standard Allergy Testing

  • Painful - 40-50 skin scratches​​ (on average)

  • Only tests 40-50 allergens

  • Time consuming - 20-25 minutes

  • Potential risks – Intradermal shot of food & other allergens

  • Potential risks - Introduction of food with food challenge

Standard Allergy Treatment

  • Weekly Shots (SCIT): This method is extremely time consuming. Additonally, most children are afraid of the injections, yielding low compliance

  • Sublingual immnotherapy (SLIT): Sitting still & hold drops under the tongue for two minutes is typically a difficult task to ask a young child to do

  • SCIT and SLIT have been the current standard of care for the past 20 years

​Solution:
New Test & Treatment Program

TEST

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A new finger stick blood test (fast - not scary) which tests for 180 allergens (vs. average 40-50 skin tests)​.
 Using only 5 drops of blood on the blood card and using the next-generation molecular proteomic test  technology, physicians can now measure the patient's progress in about 10 business days. The sensitivity and specificity of this test is measured at over 95%. Thus, this new finger stick blood test is extremely accurate and sensitive compared to 30% false positives from scratch testing.

TOOTHPASTE

The solution is Oral Mucosal Immunotherapy (OMIT). This therapy is delivered using Allerdent®, a specialized pharmocologic toothpaste base formulated to incorporate and stabilize allergy immunotherapy extracts. These serum allergy immunotherapy extracts are the same compounds used in SLIT (Sublingual immunotherapy).

Oral Mucosa is a natural site of immune tolerance, and is effective in binding antigenic serum in toothpaste  without hypersensitivity reactions or severe side effects. Simply push the pharmacy regulated pump twice to receive the exact metered daily amount needed. Ask your physician for a prescription.
