Background: Subcutaneous Immunotherapy changes the immune response in allergic patients and results in an inhibition of the specific type 1 allergic response. This inhibition is mainly brought about by a change in the immunoglobulin response pattern from allergen specific IgE towards predominantly IgG. Seven days after vaccination with tetanus vaccine, plasma cells producing specific IgG antibodies are found in the blood. We want to show that a similar response is seen after subcutaneous immunotherapy.
