Immunotherapy for Allergy Treatment

Medicana Bahçelievler Hospital Chest Disease Specialist Assist. Assoc. Dr. Hande Ikitimur noted that immunotherapy, the vaccine treatment, is the only treatment that has the ability to change the course of allergic diseases.

“Allergy drugs often provide trouble-free control of the disease. Because allergic diseases are chronic, drugs may need to be used for a long time. In addition to medication treatment, vaccination therapy also called immunotherapy that is used for providing immunity against substances which develop severe allergic reactions, is the only treatment that has the ability to change both the therapeutic nature and the course of allergic diseases. It has been observed that immunotherapy, in which allergens are injected into allergic individuals and that the body is immunized against these substances, is effective and safe in the treatment of respiratory diseases and venom (bee) allergy, especially allergic rhinitis and allergic asthma. Immunotherapy that should be done in a hospital environment where emergency intervention can be made, administers fewer reactions to the allergens and provides relief of symptoms of the disease  by occurring changes in the immune system called tolerance during the period between 3 or 5 years of therapy based on the response given by the patient.”
