What is Sublingual Immunotherapy and what is it good for?

Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) is an allergy desensitization technique, where dilute blends of allergens are administered under the tongue in order to improve immune tolerance. SLIT is effective for the treatment of respiratory allergies, including allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, mild to moderate asthma, and bronchial hyper-reactivity. There are a number of randomized controlled trials and several meta-analyses demonstrating the benefits of SLIT for various types of allergies.
