 New Allergy Treatment from Once Daily Tablet

A once-a-day tablet made up of a key ragweed pollen protein can be effective in treating allergy patients who suffer from runny noses, sneezes, nasal congestion and itchy eyes according to a new study conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins.

The researchers found that high doses of the protein, known as Ambrosia artemisiifolia major allergen 1, not only lowers the severity of allergy symptoms by as much as 27 percent, but also reduces the need for anti-allergy drugs.


"Our results show this oral tablet for ragweed allergy is highly effective and well-tolerated, and offers considerable relief from what many allergy sufferers consider the most agonizing part of the year", lead researcher Peter Creticos said.

The study has been published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
