Detailed Description:

Immunotherapy is a specific treatment for allergic diseases. Unlike conventional pharmacological treatment, immunotherapy is the only treatment that could modify the natural course of allergic disease. This is a prospective double-blind placebo controlled study with three arms of treatment: placebo and two active (one of the active arms will receive a dose that is 10x the dose of the other arm).
