About the VITESSE Clinical Trial

This trial is designed to study the effectiveness of a revolutionary approach to treating peanut allergies in young children. Participants in the study will use a specialized sticker containing 250 micrograms of peanut daily for one year. Previous studies have shown that this method, known as the Viaskin™ sticker, can significantly improve peanut tolerance after continuous use.
