Modern concepts of immunotherapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Although common allergies have been considered as immediate IgE antibody mediated responses, attention is now turning to inflammatory responses that appear to be initiated by T-cell responses to peptides from allergens presented in combination with HLA class II molecules. Although classic immunotherapy with allergen extracts has been found to downregulate these T-cell responses, more efficient and safe methods are being sought.
