DBV Technologies to Participate in Upcoming EAACI 2022 Congress
DBV Technologies (Euronext: DBV – ISIN: FR0010417345 – Nasdaq Stock Market: DBVT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced upcoming participation at the hybrid in-person and virtual European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Annual Scientific meeting, July 1 – 3, 2022, in Prague, Czech Republic. Two scientific presentations have been accepted, including one non-clinical poster and a late-breaking oral presentation. DBV will also host a symposium and a booth in the congress exhibit hall.
The data to be presented will discuss the direct out-of-pocket costs and indirect costs of peanut allergy in households with peanut-allergic children ages 4 to 11 years across Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Additionally, DBV will present an innovative approach to predicting peanut challenge outcomes using a novel Basophil Activation Test (BAT) and serum parameters as a potential biomarker of oral food challenge outcomes. These data can help to inform food allergy diagnosis, and potentially introduce a novel approach to predicting oral food challenge outcomes for patients participating in immunotherapy clinical trials.
“The data that we are showcasing at EAACI this year highlight the global burden that food allergy families and patients carry every day,” said Dr. Pharis Mohideen, Chief Medical Officer of DBV Technologies. “There is an urgent unmet medical need for food allergy treatment options and innovations in this space, such as predictive biomarkers in clinical trials, that may one day improve quality of life for this population. I am pleased that we will be engaging in robust discussions around these topics.”
Separately, DBV is hosting a symposium on “Food Allergies in Europe: Accumulating Evidence” that will discuss the burden of peanut allergy and the potential of the Viaskin™ technology. Symposium topics will explore the viability of using Viaskin to treat an array of allergic conditions, including milk, cashew and peanut. Viaskin Peanut (DBV712 250 μg) is the Company’s lead product candidate designed to potentially reduce the risk of allergic reactions in peanut-allergic children ages 4 to 11 years due to accidental exposure to peanuts. An investigational, non-invasive, once-daily, epicutaneous patch, Viaskin Peanut seeks to deliver microgram quantities of peanut antigen to activate the immune system. Viaskin Peanut is based on epicutaneous immunotherapy (EPIT™), and is DBV’s proprietary method of delivering biologically active compounds to the immune system through intact skin. Viaskin has not yet been approved by the U.S. FDA or any other regulatory authority.
“Food Allergies in Europe: Accumulating Evidence” will be chaired by Professor Gideon Lack and Professor Antonella Muraro
- Date and Location: Saturday, July 2, 2022, from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. CEST, Room B2
- “Food Allergies: A Collective Effort to Better Qualify the Burden,” Dr. Luciana Tanno
- “Viaskin™: A Potent Technology to Address Food Allergies,” Dr. Katharina Blümchen
- “Viaskin™ and Peanut Allergy: An Ambitious Project,” Professor Susanne Lau
Both presentations will be accompanied by recorded author presentations and will be available on-demand at www.virtual.eaaci.org beginning on July 1, 2022.
Please note that only registered attendees will be able to access the virtual poster hall, which is available through the virtual EAACI platform.
“Economic Burden Caused by Peanut Allergy in Children Between 4 – 11 Years of Age in Europe” will be presented by Professor Antonella Muraro
- Available on the virtual EAACI platform
Late-Breaking Oral Abstract Presentation
“A Novel Approach to Predicting Peanut Challenge Outcomes Using BAT and Serum Parameters with a Machine Learning Approach” will be presented by Dr. Mayte Suarez-Farinas
- Date and Location: Session LB OAS 2, Sunday, July 3, 2022, 11:15 – 12:45 p.m. CEST, Room E1
DBV will host a booth in the Exhibit Hall, which will be open July 1 – 3, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. CEST. The booth number is #B2.
