State of the Art: Development of a Sublingual Allergy Immunotherapy Tablet for Allergic Rhinitis in Japan. Biol Pharm Bull. 2020;43(1):41-48 Authors: Ohashi-Doi K, Lund K, Mitobe Y, Okamiya K Abstract Allergic rhinitis (AR) caused by house dust mite (HDM) and Japanese cedar pollen (JCP) represents a significant, expanding health problem in Japan. Allergic symptoms often have a severe impact on the QOL such as sleep disturbance and reduced school and work performance. In addition to the classical symptoms, AR is known to be a risk factor for the development of allergic asthma, a potentially life-threatening condition. Allergy immunotherapy (AIT) is a well-documented, safe, effective treatment option for respiratory allergic disease. It has been demonstrated that AIT can provide relief from clinical symptoms and that AIT has the potential to provide long-term post-treatment effect. Although the mechanism of AIT is not fully understood, it can actively modulate protective allergen-reactive pathways of the immune system and alter the natural course of disease. Unlike pharmacotherapy, AIT addresses the basic immunological mechanisms that are responsible for the development and persistence of allergic conditions. Currently two main routes of AIT administration are commonly available, subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) and sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). Both SCIT and SLIT are clinically effective, and SLIT is particularly well tolerated, with a lower risk of s...

Abstract Allergic rhinitis is a common disorder that regularly occurs in children and adolescents. The disease is associated with other allergic diseases, such as asthma, and it carries a heavy burden, with effects on sleep, school performance, and quality of life. Classic symptoms include sneezing, rhinorrhea, nasal obstruction, and nasal itching. When the eyes are involved, the term allergic rhinoconjunctivitis is used. Triggers may include airborne pollens, molds, dust mites, and animals. Skin or blood allergy testing can be a useful diagnostic modality that may guide therapy. Immunotherapy can prevent the deve...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIn this article, we review the impact and the treatment of sleep disturbance caused by allergic rhinitis (AR) in adult and pediatric patients.Recent FindingsAlthough intranasal corticosteroids (INS) remain the mainstay treatments for AR-induced sleep disturbance, allergen immunotherapy (AIT) has been suggested to be effective in altering the course and progression of moderate-to-severe AR that is refractory to pharmacotherapy. MP-AzeFlu is a recently developed formulation containing azelastine, an intranasal antihistamine (INAH), and fluticasone propionate, an INS. MP-AzeFlu has been reported to ha...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare changes in quality of life (QOL) that resulted from sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) and subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) in a real-world clinical setting. BACKGROUND: SLIT is established as a viable alternative to SCIT for the treatment of allergic rhinitis. Although comparative trials are increasingly available, few studies have examined QOL outcomes between these two treatments. METHODS: One hundred and five participants who underwent immunotherapy for airborne allergies were enrolled in this prospective, single-center study. Forty participants completed the Rhinoconjuncti...

Abstract JUSTIFICATION: Asthma and allergic rhinitis together are part of the concept of one airway, one disease or united airway disease. The management of allergic airway diseases should address this united concept and manage the issue by educating the patients and their parents and health care providers, along with environmental control measures, pharmacotherapy and immunotherapy. Here, we present recommendations from the module of Airway Diseases Education and Expertise (ADEX) that focused on allergic rhinitis, asthma and sleep disorder breathing as a single entity or Allergic Airway Disease. PROCESS: A w...

Abstract Allergic respiratory disease represents a significant and expanding health problem worldwide. Allergic symptoms, such as asthma and hay fever, cause sleep impairment and reduce school and work performance. The cost to society is substantial. Allergen avoidance and pharmacotherapy cannot control the disease. Only allergy immunotherapy has disease-modifying potential and should be included in optimal treatment strategies. Allergy immunotherapy was first administered as subcutaneous injections and has been practiced for the past 100 years or so. Recently, tablet-based sublingual allergy immunotherapy (SLIT) ...
