dynavax- the peanut allergy genetic vaccine
I'm sure some of you have seen the website by dynavax. I think they will be the company to watch....I wrote to them inquiring about the future of clinical trials on the peanut vaccine....this is the response I got. Just wanted to share it with all of you :
Dear Mrs. Farkas,
Thank you for your interest in the vaccine program at Dynavax. At this stage we only have preclinical research activities that are ongoing regarding peanut allergy. Depending on the outcome of these studies we may decide to move into the clinic but this will not occur in the immediate future. I will advise that you check with us again towards the end of the year.
As you are probably aware some encouraging results have been reported recently with anti IgE monoclonal antibodies and you may want to check whether clinical studies are being scheduled with these products. I do understand your concern for your child and wish I could be of more help.
Best of luck and kind regards,
Daniel Gennevois, M.D.
