Allergy immunotherapy products are based on controlled doses of purified and standardised allergens (proteins), extracted from natural allergen sources: Pollens (grass, trees etc.), house dust mites, animals, insect stings. During the treatment, the immune system is gradually desensitised, so that the patient gets accustomed to the allergens that normally cause an allergic reaction.
Allergy immunotherapy is a clinically documented efficacious treatment, which may considerably reduce the patient’s allergic symptoms and the need for traditional, symptom-relieving medication. Furthermore, the treatment has been documented to have a longstanding effect after it is discontinued. An additional effect is that the natural progression of the allergic disease is inhibited and the development of asthma or new allergies may be prevented.
