Abstract

Aim: Specific immunotherapy is one of the alternative treatments of the allergic diseases. The efficacy of specific immunotherapy was investigated in patients receiving allergen specific immunotherapy with the diagnosis of allergic rhinitis and/or asthma.
Methods: Six child and 11 adult pollen sensitive patients were included in the study. Patients were treated with specific immunotherapy at least 24 months and more. All patients challenged with the mixed inhalant allergen extracts. Some of them were not selected for the specific immunotherapy.
Results: The challenge procedure was tolerated in all patients. Adverse reactions and systemic allergic reactions were not occured.
Conclusion: Allergen specific immunotherapy may alter the natural course of the allergic diseases, and we can treat allergic rhinitis and/or asthma with specific immunotherapy.
