Sucking your baby’s pacifier might protect them from allergies, study says

Your baby’s pacifier falls on the floor. Before giving it back to your child, do you wash it in a sink or, perhaps reluctantly, clean it with your own saliva?

Do not feel too guilty if you chose the latter, because a new study suggests that a mother’s spit and the bacteria in it may help prevent allergies in young children.

 

Allergy Therapeutics (LON:AGY) is an international commercial biotechnology group focused on the treatment and diagnosis of allergic disorders, including immunotherapy vaccines that have the potential to cure disease. The Group sells proprietary and third-party products from its subsidiaries in nine major European countries and via distribution agreements in an additional fourteen countries. Its broad pipeline of products in clinical development include vaccines for grass, tree and house dust mite, and peanut allergy vaccine in pre-clinical development. Adjuvant systems to boost performance of vaccines outside allergy are also in development.
