  1. Thank you for a very helpful video. I just wonder why Dr. August did not mention the vaccine strategy: immunizing people with allergens (antigens) and Th1 promoting adjuvants will induce a class switch from IgE to IgG, from humoral to cellular response. Compared to treatments mentioned above which are short-term, allergy vaccine has significant advantage thanks to its long-lasting effect.
