Immunotherapy is the only treatment modality that can alter the natural history of allergic diseases. <br>SLIT is an effective and safe new treatment for allergic subjects with monosensitive grass pollen or mite allergies and is given at home. <br>Evidence-based reviews (Cochrane) confirm both efficacy and safety of SLIT in children and adults. <br>The effects of SLIT are sustained for up to 10 years after discontinuation. <br>SLIT prevents the progression of rhinitis to asthma and the development of new allergic sensitisations.
