In brief: Immunotherapy

Never a guarantee any immunotherapy will be effective, but oftentimes it is due to making a weak serum, placing proteolytic allergens together, or patients non-compliance and never reaching top dose.

In brief: Possible reasons...

Inadequate dose of allergen in the allergy vaccine; missing allergens not identified during the allergy evaluation; high levels of allergen in environment (i.
e. Inadequate environmental control); significant exposure to non-allergic triggers (i.e. Tobacco smoke).
