Immunotherapy of allergic contact dermatitis

Immunotherapy of allergic diseases is aimed at inducing tolerance of sensitizing antigens, and the Department of Experimental Dermatology & Cosmetology at Jagiellonian University Medical College in Poland has written a report looking at the historical developments, present state and future outlook for immunotherapy. Animal and human experiments have confirmed that immunotherapy works best when the induction of tolerance precedes attempted sensitization, but in reality therapy is sought by those who are already sensitized. Immunotherapy differs between the sensitising antigen, and it can be therapeutically unprofitable.
