Unlike drug treatments for allergic disease which mask or suppress allergic reactions, immunotherapy "resets" the immune system to prevent allergic reactions. This fifth edition of a bestseller provides comprehensive coverage of all types of allergies and vaccines, providing clinicians with the information they need to accurately diagnose their patients and offer the best possible treatment. The new edition contains a new chapter in skin testing and extensive updates to the sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) chapter.
