What is an allergy?
How to treat an allergy?
Allergy literally means ‘altered reaction’. Allergies cause the body to ‘overreact’ to what are normally harmless substances. Examples are house dust mite allergy, hay fever and food allergy. The immune system regards certain substances as intruders, against which it must ‘arm’ itself, resulting in a hypersensitivity reaction which can take various forms.
Developing the Future for You
HAL Allergy is a modern biopharmaceutical company with GMP certified state-of-the-art facilities located at the Bio Science Park in Leiden, The Netherlands. We are a leading player in the development, production and marketing of allergen preparations for causal allergy immunotherapy and in vivo diagnostics for common allergies such as allergic rhinitis (hay fever), allergic asthma, house dust mites allergy and allergic reactions towards wasp or bee stings.
Research and Development at HAL Allergy
HAL Allergy manufactures medication in which the severeness of the allergic reactions diminishes and in the end possibly disappears. With this allergy vaccination the causes of the symptoms are tackled at the source. By using small amounts of allergens, the human immune system gets used to the allergens that cause the reactions. So within a few months the patients have less symptoms and within a few years may no longer suffer from an allergy. This is in contrast with symptom suppressing medication which offers short term relief.
