ALLERTOL is a portmanteau combining the words “allergen” and “tolerance”:  aller + tol.

Allertol is an allergy drop solution placed under the tongue to develop immune tolerance. It has the same allergen extract used in allergy shots and is based on allergy drop therapy used widely in Europe, and which is gaining acceptance in the U.S. 

Fresh from his training program in Galveston, Dr. John P Shea attended a lecture in 1980 presented by the renowned Harvard trained allergist, Dr. Theron Randolph. . Presented was the concept of delayed food sensitivity and the multitude of symptoms that can be produced.  He also discussed the oral route for immunotherapy as an alternative to allergy shots. In 1982, Dr. Shea began offering allergy drops as well as allergy shots to his allergy patients. In 2007, after 25 years of evaluating allergy shots versus allergy drops, ALLERTOL was born, providing an allergy drop solution for common delayed food allergies as well as airborne allergies.  ALLERTOL method of sublingual immunotherapy for airborne allergies resulted in significant improvement over allergy shots, and resulted in dramatically reduced need for allergy medications and clinic visits.

Allergy drops proved to have many advantages, especially safety. Acute asthma and other reactions to allergy shots have been reported to be as often as 1 in 2000 allergy shots.  The death rate from receiving allergy shots has been decreasing over the years, making death from allergy shots a rare occurrence. The United Kingdom in 1993 started prohibition of allergy shots in patients with asthma because of the risk of fatal reactions.   There have been no reports of fatal reactions from allergy drops.

ALLERTOL for delayed food allergy has helped with nasal complaints especially the nasal blockage that worsens nocturnally sleeping supine; deep itching of the ear, eye and throat; migraine headache, repeated cough, throat clearing, and wheezing; fatigue; skin itching and eczema; Menieres symptoms of intermittent blocked ear, tinnitus, dizziness. 

Favorite foods, such as Mexican food, most commonly cause delayed food allergy symptoms, which are delayed several hours after eating.

Testing for these delayed chronic food reactions has been difficult.  The “gold standard” has been elimination diets and food challenge.  Standard skin and blood tests for these chronic food allergies is usually negative. Costly skin and blood tests have been replaced by simple inexpensive sublingual testing using the ALLERTOL method.

ALLERTOL is formulated using allergy extract approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administraton) for injection.

ALLERTOL is not used for immediate severe anaphylactic reactions to a single known food such as peanut.  High levels of antibody IgE are associated with these allergies.  Skin and blood tests detect IgE levels. 

The World Health Organization has heralded the safety and efficacy of allergy drops, and suggested them as an alternative to allergy shots.   The Cochrane review, an independent and respected British study group, has found allergy drops safe and effective. An international study group that included United States allergy physicians published guidelines for treatment of asthma (ARIA) and indicated that allergy drops were a safe alternative treatment.  In Europe, allergy drops are commonplace.  American allergists are showing increasing interest in sublingual immunotherapy.

Allertol is NOT used to prevent or treat immediate life-threatening allergy/anaphylaxis.
