Skin barrier cream study for newborns to prevent allergies

By Adem Lewis / in , , , , , , , , , , , , /

Australia has one of the highest rates
of allergic disease in the world. We know that children are born with a
relatively poor skin barrier in early life. What we believe is happening is
this poor skin barrier is allowing allergens through the skin which leads to
sensitisation, and then eventually allergic disease. We’re investigating a form of intervention that aims to prevent the
development of eczema and food allergy. What we’re using is an intervention
called Epiceram, it’s a barrier cream that specifically aims to build up skin
barrier function. So in this round of the study we’ll be recruiting 760 children from around Melbourne. We need them to have a family history of allergic disease, and the baby needs to be less than three weeks of age.

  1. 1. Science knows that cuts in childhood create allergies and skin conditions due to cuts of the flesh in childhood mutating genetics. That can also be passed onto the next generation via the genetics. 2. Science also knows that gut flora of the mother and what she eats impacts upon the unborn child. 3. Science knows that from birth to age three anyone that touches a baby impacts upon the gut flora of the baby. 4. We know that science knows that 8 million cat lovers in the UK have a dormant disease from the cats. 5. It's quite incredible how many mothers don't breastfeed their babies, even though many know that it is far more healthy for the babies. In the maternity ward that I was in only five out of 35 mothers breastfed and that was in 1983.
