Uses:Allergen-specific IgE antibody levels as measured by in vitro assays are sometimes used as grounds for instituting immunotherapy, however the results of a Specific IgE test should not be the only consideration when selecting an initial dose for immunotherapy. Prior to implementing immunotherapy, a skin test with the planned initial dilution of the immunotherapy solution should be performed to prove that the patient tolerates in vivo administration of this allergenic extract.
