Stallergenes Greer’s Personalised Allergen Immunotherapy Model Encouraged by Leading Scientists: "Allergy" Journal Publishes Article Today
Stallergenes Greer, a biopharmaceutical company specialising in treatments for allergies, announces the publication of an article titled “Personalized Medicine for allergy treatment: AIT, still a unique and unmatched model” in the EAACI’s (European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology) official journal Allergy.
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20200901005819/en/
The publication marks a clear consensus on allergen immunotherapy (AIT). It was co-authored by 49 world-renowned allergy specialists from 40 countries and coordinated by Professor Giorgio Walter Canonica, Personalised Medicine, Asthma and Allergy, Humanitas University and Research (Milano, Italy) and Professor Cristoforo Incorvaia, Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation, ASST Pini/CTO, (Milano, Italy), with an unrestricted grant from Stallergenes Greer.
The article demonstrates that there is very strong evidence to show that AIT achieves its primary therapeutic goals in patients with respiratory allergies1,2 by reducing the frequency and intensity of symptoms, the use of rescue medications, and improving quality of life for people with allergies.
Personalised medicine is improving the effectiveness and precision of allergy diagnosis and consequently increasing the performance and treatment outcome of AIT.
“This landmark publication, which is fully aligned with Stallergenes Greer’s commitment, highlights the unique role of AIT in allergy treatment encompassing the prediction of a successful treatment, the potential prevention or progression of an allergic disease, and the possibility of providing such advances at affordable costs,” states Amer Jaber, EVP Operations Europe and President of Stallergenes SAS, who heads Stallergenes Greer's R&D.
AIT: a medical model of personalised healthcare
The article outlines that personalised allergy care is valuable and may also be preventive by focusing on quality of life, predictive by allowing treatment to be adjusted to the individual’s response and participative by empowering the patient.
AIT is consistent with the three major needs to be met in personalised medicine:
- the identification of the molecular mechanism of the disease,
- the availability of diagnostic tools to recognise this mechanism, and
- the availability of a treatment capable of blocking the mechanism3,4.
AIT delivers customised healthcare, with medical decisions, practices, and/or products tailored to the individual patient5.
Leveraging precision medicine for personalised allergy care
This tailor-made approach to diagnosis, decision-making, product choice and treatment schedules may enhance effectiveness, minimise adverse events, improve quality of life and reduce the socio-economic impact of allergies 6,7,8,9.
Stallergenes Greer’s purpose “Enabling precision medicine to improve life for people with allergies” is in line with the statements set out in the article. Stallergenes Greer is committed to furthering precision medicine and personalised AIT treatments to maximise treatment outcomes for patients with allergies.

Health Professionals Petition WHO for Guidance: People Should Use Nasal Sprays to Combat COVID-19 Pandemic; Doctors Use in Treating Patients25.1.2021 09:00:00 CET | Press release
Today, a consortium of health professionals petitioned the World Health Organization to issue Guidance calling on: all people to use nasal sprays to combat the COVID-19 pandemic; doctors to use them in treating COVID-19 patients; and, Member-States to implement public health policies promoting the use of nasal sprays to both prevent and treat COVID-19. The petition asks the WHO to promulgate guidance that promotes the use of nasal sprays with data indicating that they are antiviral (blocks viral adhesion), virucidal (kills or deactivates the virus), anti-bacterial (block bacteria, in particular pneumonia bacteria) and bactericidal (kills bacteria, in particular pneumonia bacteria). “We have data showing that certain nasal sprays don’t just wash away the virus. Certain sprays actually block, deactivate and/or kill the virus,” said Dr. Gustavo Ferrer, a respiratory illness expert who has conducted research on the use of nasal sprays to combat COVID-19, and is among the petitioners.
