In brief: Therapeutic dose
Maintenance phase begins when the effective therapeutic dose is reached.
The effective maintenance dose is different for each person, depending on their level of allergen sensitivity and their response to the immunotherapy build-up phase. Once the maintenance dose is reached, there will be longer periods of time between immunotherapy treatments.

Maintenance phase can also refer to courses of chemotherapy for cancer that are not as intensive, but usually cover a more prolonged period of time.
