Is eczema inevitable for some kids? Breakthrough research from 2022 suggests that testing and intervention for newborns could change the trajectory.

Imagine if doctors could use a non-invasive test on newborns to predict their risk of developing eczema?   Now it might be possible.  What’s more, new research suggests there is something you can do for high risk babies. Join us as we learn about an innovative test for eczema and what you might do with this information.   Our guest speakers are Dr. Anne-Sofie Halling who is completing a PhD on biomarkers of atopic dermatitis at Copenhagen University, Denmark; Prof. Alan Irvine a professor of dermatology at Trinity College, Dublin Ireland; and, Prof. Jonathan Hourihane a professor of pediatrics and child health at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
