Allergen Immunotherapy (Desensitization)

By allergenscript | February 26, 2017

Desensitization or hyposensitization is increasingly being prescribed therapeutically with an aim to reduce environmental allergen-specific IgE-mediated sensitivity in hypersensitive (atopic) individuals and to reduce demands on constrained health services (Dwyer, 1993). Low doses of offending allergens are slowly introduced to the immune system via subcutaneous or sublingual modes of delivery. Patients who tolerate the allergen exposure have these doses progressively increased, initially by volume and subsequently by concentration of the specific mixtures referred to as the “build-up” phase. Doses are…

Physical Activity, Exercise and Asthma

There is evidence obesity increases risk of asthma or complicates the condition further. Environmental allergens. such as house dust mites are common triggers for asthmatics. Asthmatics who exercise regularly have shown decreased specific IgE levels to house dust mite allergens (Haahtela et al., 2013). Large scale, and long term epidemiological studies…
