Prevent Allergies with a Pill

Allergy treatment in a pill form

Tired of trying to manage your allergies after you’ve already been exposed? Most allergy treatment focuses on the symptoms, and is most useful when exposure can be anticipated. Well, scientists have announced a whole new breakthrough in allergy treatment. In fact, by taking a pill, allergy sufferers could block allergens from ever entering their bodies!

Researchers are presently studying a new drug which is a classified as an allergy delivery inhibitor (ADI). An ADI is an entirely new type of treatment that is designed to prevent allergens from getting through a cell’s protective lining. For instance, when you inhale pollen or dust mites, they are able to dissolve the binding material between the cells that form a protective lining for the body. This allows the allergen to get into the body and wreak havoc. If the specific allergen can’t get through this lining, the allergic reaction can’t occur. It’s that simple.

The use of an allergy pill would be a significant advancement over the standard approaches to allergy relief; including allergen avoidance, as well as symptom management and treatment. However, sometimes you just can’t avoid contact with an allergen and simply ingesting a pill is much easier than restricting your life or having to employ significant housecleaning strategies to keep dust or dust mites at bay.

This is where allergy prevention is a whole new way to manage allergies. Avoidance would no longer be necessary.

Researchers are looking forward to starting clinical trials, pending funding. If these trials begin in the next three years, the pill itself could be used as an allergy treatment in the next five years.
