Next-generation allergy vaccines to be developed in Finland to create effective and safe desensitization therapies

Quote:
VTT holds patents on gene technology which can be applied to alter the structure of an allergen, i.e. a protein causing allergy, so that it will cause less allergic symptoms than the original allergen, while remaining effective in desensitisation therapy.

"The vaccine helps to improve the protection to the allergen, thus, alleviating the symptoms. That's why we prefer to use the term vaccine, instead of medication," VTT's Senior Advisor Hans Söderlund explains. The research objective is to develop an orally administered vaccine.
