Phadia product ‘highlights H1N1 vaccine allergy dangers’

10th November 2009

Phadia has announced the availability of a test kit which has the capability to identify egg allergies in those about to receive swine flu virus vaccines, it has announced.

As many vaccines are cultivated within chicken’s eggs and therefore contain traces of this, Phadia has highlighted the danger of this for those with sensitivities to the foodstuff.

The reaction can be so severe for some that the Food and Drug Administration has advised against those with egg allergies opting for it, the firm pointed out.

However, Phadia’s ImmunoCAP test system facilitates diagnosis in children with suspected egg allergies and can determine the level of severity, thereby allowing parents and doctors to evaluate the dangers when it comes to administering the H1N1 vaccine.

In other Phadia news, the firm opened nominations for its annual Phadia Allergy Research Forum Award last week.

Candidates for the 2010 installation of the accolade can now be voted for through the firm’s website by individuals who will be no older than 45 next year.
