DERMO ACTIVE multicentric study
The nutritional solution of dermatological problems
In cats and dogs, just as in humans, symptoms related to adverse reactions to food are very common and may concern a number of systems:gastro-intestinal, otological, nervous, urinary,respiratory and the skin. In detail, skin hypersensitivity in dogs, represented by FAD,atopic dermatitis and adverse food reactions, are the most common pathologies found by veterinary surgeons. The pathologies are especially frustrating for the following reasons:poor response to medicine, continuous relapses,animal suffering, objective difficulty for owners to treat the pathology in terms of time, commitment and cost. In these cases, a specific diet is the most important instrument available to limit or avoid a large use of pharmaceuticals. On this basis, the FORZA10 R&D Center has made its goal to develop the concept to cure through nutrition by creating organ-specific nutraceutical products. The neologism “nutraceutical” is a combination of nutrition and pharmaceutical.Nutraceutics is a new branch of medicine that aims to study the effect of specific natural substances in both preventing and treating a variety of diseases.Because of its characteristics, it could become the missing link between natural medicine and pharmacology. Nutraceutical foods are also capable of solving, simply and definitely, the objectively difficult obstacle of oral, parenteral or spot on medicine administration.
