Allergies reduce quality of life by preventing individuals and their loved ones from enjoying the everyday activities that most take for granted. At their most severe, allergies can be fatal.
Whatever the severity of an allergy, the wider implications are negative. Many patients and their families live in fear and can feel isolated or excluded. There is no doubt that our work in allergy treatment is transforming lives and the lives of the people around them.
For more information on how we engage with our patients, please see page 27 of the 2021 Annual Report.
Our shorter-course treatments take four to six injections, over the course of three to five weeks. Alternative therapies in the US can take 50‑100 injections and up to 15 across Europe. Our approach increases efficiency for healthcare professionals and frees up time for our patients.
Healthcare professionals rely on our quality products, our knowledge and our trusted partnership to deliver the best care for their patients.
Adjuvants are added to vaccines to enhance and modify immune responses and can increase efficacy and reduce the number of injections required for a treatment. A number of vaccines use aluminium salts as an adjuvant; however, in the 1970s we began developing natural biodegradable alternatives and, today, all our vaccines are aluminium free and feature natural adjuvants only.
