Abstract

The scope of this review is to highlight important and interesting articles in the field of allergen-specific immunotherapy in allergic rhinitis published within the past year. The review is not intended to give a full overview of published literature but rather to focus on some subjects that I find significant in relation to the understanding of the specific treatment of allergies and to the selection of different treatment modalities. The most important aspects are how to define the most suitable candidates for the specific treatment, the mechanisms of action of immunotherapy and how to optimize treatment, and finally I include some reflections on the optimal presentation of the allergen to the immune system.
