FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Novi Allergy Center Offers New Alternative to Injection Therapy
Dr. Michael Rowe Helps FDA Approve Oral Immunotherapy

Novi, MI: The Allergy & Asthma Center of Michigan has announced the availability of the first FDA approved oral immunotherapy allergy treatments as an alternative to traditional injection immunotherapy. Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) treatments can be self administered by patients or caregivers and do not require injections. The new approach, which allows allergens to be given as a dissolvable tablet (under the tongue), has evolved into a viable treatment for allergic respiratory diseases.

Michael S. Rowe, M.D., F.A.C.P., C.P.I., the principal investigator at The Allergy & Asthma Center of Michigan, served as a clinical trial researcher for SLIT, performing studies that helped the pharmaceutical company obtain approval from the FDA.

"In addition to these advancements in treatment options now available to the general population, clinical research studies are a terrific opportunity for patients who cannot otherwise afford allergy or asthma treatments due to changes or limitations in their insurance coverage. Not everyone is eligible, but those that are get a cutting edge therapy," said Dr. Rowe.

Clinical trials are conducted at The Allergy & Asthma Center of Michigan's Novi office.  For more information call Julie at (248) 473-6400!
