The allergy/immunology specialty is benefiting from an explosion of novel modern allergy therapies.

In addition to traditional subcutaneous immunotherapy (allergy shots), we have FDA-approved sublingual desensitization products (tablets dissolved under the tongue) available to treat various inhalant allergies.  Grass and ragweed tablets have been available for a few years, and the FDA recently approved a dust mite tablet.

Biologics are becoming available at a rapid rate as well. For example, while omalizumab has been an excellent option for patients with allergic asthma since 2003, the FDA recently approved it for management of chronic urticaria (hives).  Mepolizumab and reslizumab are recently approved asthma biologics, and the FDA approved the first biologic for atopic dermatitis (dupilumab) in March.

The following tables summarize these exciting modern allergy therapies:

Sublingual immunotherapy products

Drug Allergen
Grastek Grass pollen
Ragwitek Ragweed pollen
Oralair Grass pollen
Odactra Dust mites

 

Biologics

Drug (generic) Mechanism Indication(s)
Xolair (omalizumab) Anti IgE Asthma
Chronic urticaria
Nucala (mepolizumab) Anti IL-5 Asthma
Cinqair (reslizumab) Anti IL-5 Asthma
Dupixent (dupilumab) Anti IL-4 receptor a Atopic dermatitis
