New study findings indicate that a new immune therapy can alleviate hay fever symptoms as well as prevent asthma. This is very beneficial as many children who are prone to grass pollen allergy are also at risk of asthma. The immune therapy involves placing grass pollen extract under the patients tongue during peak pollen periods of the year. Three years of this treatment led to children becoming increasingly less susceptible to allergy and hence required less medication.
