Allergen Immunotherapy

Light forms of allergy can be suppressed by eye and nose drops and intake of anti-histamines or cortison. A curative effect, however, can only be achieved by allergen immunotherapy. Allergen immunotherapy usually must last up to 3 years to achieve maximal benefit. In your body protective IgG4 immunoglobulins are formed.

Usually allergen immunotherapy is performed by injections. Dependent on the vaccine formula also quaterly instead of monthly injections are possible.

Also oral immunotherapy has proven excellent efficacy. It can be taken either in tablet form or as mouth droplets or sprays. The prescription and first intake is done in AllergyCare®, whereas all consecutive treatments will be done by yourself in your home. Your family doctor then will continue prescribing the allergen immunotherapy. 

The IgG4 immunoglobulins will from 2017 on be determined in our laboratory by the allergen microchip method.
