AllergyEasy Marks 35 Years of Introducing Americans to Sublingual Immunotherapy

Phoenix-based company that helps primary care doctors around the country prescribe a hassle-free alternative to allergy shots celebrates 35 years in business

(PRUnderground) October 9th, 2020

When Dr. Stuart Agren started his career as an allergy doctor, he saw major limitations with the common allergy treatments of the day. He found a solution in sublingual immunotherapy — a convenient alternative to allergy shots. After 35 years, he has helped scores of doctors around the country prescribe the treatment to thousands of Americans in search of a lasting allergy treatment.

AllergyEasy is a turnkey allergy treatment program that helps primary care physicians test and treat their allergic and asthmatic patients. The program uses sublingual immunotherapy, which works like allergy shots but relies on oral antigen droplets instead of shots. The drops are placed under the tongue once per day, where they are carried into the bloodstream by specialized cells in the mouth. Over time, the daily therapy can desensitize the body to allergens in the environment — including pollen, mold, pet dander, and food proteins — so that the body will stop reacting adversely to them.

Dr. Agren was one of the first physicians in the country to prescribe sublingual immunotherapy, and he knew it would mark a new day for allergy treatment.

“Up until then, if people had allergies, their options were medications or allergy shots, but there were drawbacks to both,” said Agren. “Medications like antihistamines or decongestants don’t solve anything. They just cover up the symptoms, but when they wear off, people feel miserable again. Allergy shots have to be administered at the doctor’s office — usually a couple of times per week, which can be very hard to make time for.”

Allergy shots have been associated with a significant number of severe anaphylactic reactions, which has led to the requirement for medical supervision. Allergy drops, on the other hand, have been shown to be safer than shots and deemed safe for home administration.

When Dr. Agren first started prescribing sublingual immunotherapy, he found study after study showing that the treatment was as effective as shots, and his own in-office studies bore this out. He also found that the treatment worked quickly.

“With patients taking the allergy serum on a daily basis rather than getting shots just two or three times per week, our improvement rates tend to be faster than shots can produce,” said Agren.

Shortly after he started prescribing sublingual immunotherapy, Dr. Agren began getting requests from out-of-town patients. He decided to help their doctors offer sublingual immunotherapy through a turnkey program providing all allergy testing and treatment supplies. Today, doctors in 32 states prescribe the AllergyEasy drops. This includes pediatricians who gravitate to the drops because of their high safety profile.

“Allergy shots aren’t usually recommended until age 7, but that’s not helpful when you’re working with a toddler with terrible eczema or asthma or allergic rhinitis,” said Agren. “Drops have been shown to be safe for younger children so they expand what pediatricians have historically been able to offer their young patients.”

Allergy drops are also more portable than allergy shots because they can be taken on the go, making them ideal for military members and people who travel frequently.
