The findings from the comparison suggest that oral immunotherapy (OIT) is more effective than sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT), said Stacy Chin, MD, from Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, who presented the findings in a featured poster.

"At baseline, 1 year, and 2 years, immunologic changes occur in both SLIT and OIT, compared with placebo, but we see more extensive changes in the first 2 years with OIT than with SLIT," she told Medscape Medical News.

Safety and adverse-effects data were not presented, but the OIT therapy did seem to carry a heavier burden, Dr. Chin reported.
