The article examines the use of injection immunotherapy in treating allergic asthma. Immune modulation has been found to modify the underlying disease processes of asthma. Subcutaneous allergen, anti-Immunoglobulin E therapy, and intravenous immunoglobulin were among the immunotherapeutic strategies discussed. Implications of the research were also discussed.
