New study seeks to prevent eczema in babies

Parent Interventions

A new study, under a collaboration between the Sheffield Dermatology Research Group at the University of Sheffield and the University of Manchester will see how our skin develops from birth aims to identify the early risk factors for the development of eczema. The Skin Testing for Atopic eczema Risk (STAR) study will monitor 175 babies during their first year of life to see how their skin matures, and identify which of them are most at risk of developing eczema.

Babies will be monitored throughout their first 12 months using specialist, non-invasive fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy technology provided by Agilent, industry partners of the collaborative study. The research learnings help the medical community to diagnose as early as possible, to administer the right care and promote effective management of eczema.
