Tolerance mechanisms of AIT


van de Veen, Willem; Akdis, Mübeccel (2019). Tolerance mechanisms of AIT. Allergy:all.14126.

Abstract

Allergen immunotherapy (AIT) is the only curative treatment for allergic diseases. It induces immune tolerance together with the reduction of the symptoms of asthma and allergic rhinitis patients. The common routes for the application of AIT for respiratory allergens are subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) and sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). SCIT improves the symptoms of asthma and rhinitis and increase the quality of life.
