- Allergoids are available both for subcutaneous application and, more recently, as a sublingual form of administration.
Remember! The decisive advantage of allergoids in practice is that the allergen dose required for immunotherapy (see below: immunotherapy, specific and immunotherapy, specific, oral) can be administered more safely and faster than that of conventional allergens. A treatment therefore seems to be less stressful and time-consuming for allergy sufferers. In practice, however, this theory could not be upheld, as allergoids can also cause severe systemic reactions.
