Hyposensibilization / Desensitization


Help against the agonizing allergy promises the desensitization - commonly known as specific immunotherapy.

The desensitization is currently recognized as an effective therapy in the allergology by the WHO Advisory Committee. Desensitization means to "make unsensitive". That is, the body is repeatedly supplied in increasing doses with the allergen. The allergy sufferer is so gradually accustomed to the disease-causing substances. Thus, the body becomes less sensitive to the allergen. Each treatment solution, i.e. the substance to be administered, is prepared individually. The substand is administered in the form of drops or by injection under the skin. A desensitization is especially useful for respiratory allergies, such as hay fever and asthma. But it is also used in the treatment of insect venom allergies.

Why desensitization?

Example hay fever:

In about 30% of the cases, a floor shift is taking place. That is, the hay fever is spreading to the lower respiratory tract. Thus, it may turn into bronchial asthma.

The specific immunotherapy is most successful in children, adolescents, and in the first years of the emerging allergies. With the latest allergen products, the success rate is for bee and wasp allergies 90 to 100%, pollen, dust mites, and mold allergies about 80 to 90%.
