A new eczema ‘breakthrough’ was reported on Australian TV this week.
Speaking on the Australian breakfast television programme, Today, Dr Ross Walker announced a new treatment; a ‘monoclonal antibody’ which has reportedly been effective for patients suffering from arthritis and psoriasis.
The drug serves to block inflammation in the body and has been tested on a limited number of eczema patients. The initial trials says Dr Walker, has seen a 75% reduction in eczema symptoms and for 40% of patients, their eczema has been, “completely abolished.”
The drug is now going into official medical trials in Australia.
So I guess we need to watch this space and keep our itchy little fingers crossed.
