Allergy Therapeutics (LON:AGY), the fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical company specialising in allergy vaccines, said today that a satellite symposium entitled: “The Best Therapies by Design” was held at the 36(th) Annual Congress of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) in Helsinki, Finland on 18 June 2017, providing an overview of the technologies and strategies involved in designing the best immunotherapies.
Chaired by Professor Stephen Durham, four world-leading experts in the field of allergy, pollen, and immunotherapy vaccine delivery, Jörg Kleine-Tebbe, Erika Jensen-Jarolim, Uwe Berger & Tim Higenbottam presented on the strategy, design and considerations involved in creating immunotherapies such as Allergy Therapeutics’ flagship product, Pollinex Quattro(R). Uwe Berger and Erika Jensen-Jarolim discussed the importance of highlighting relevant allergens and characterising them sufficiently. Jörg Kleine-Tebbe discussed why successful immunotherapy requires identification of the optimal dose before Phase III studies are begun, before Tim Higenbottam finished the session describing the results recently gained from the Group’s clinical studies.
Manuel Llobet, Chief Executive Officer , commented Allergy Therapeutics (LON:AGY): “We are delighted with our progress in developing the next generation of allergen immunotherapy products. Our latest clinical data on dose-ranging confirms that our unique allergen-specific immunotherapies are formulated to the optimal strength and we believe Allergy Therapeutics has the potential to transform allergy treatment with optimised-dose, well-characterised, aluminium-free products.”
