Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)

 

Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) (Allergy Drops) is the name given to allergy vaccines that are administered orally under the tongue. 

SLIT has had less studies overall than OIT but has shown to be very effective in the therapy of a number of food allergies.  Where OIT is designed to make one possible to completely stop avoiding the offending food, SLIT is effective in protecting from the accidental exposure and cross contamination.

SLIT has been studied and successfully treated patients with peanut allergy, milk allergy, egg allergy and hazel nut allergy. (See our article page for references

SLIT has a MUCH lower rate of severe reactions but just as many or mild symptoms as OIT. 

Why choose SLIT offer OIT?  SLIT may be a better choice for those who have had a history of multiple severe anaphylactic reactions.  It is also a choice for parents and patients who are too nervous to under go OIT.

SLIT has also been used to start desensitization first then transfer over to OIT.
