The Nextmune Academy is now official! Our kick-off event in the first week of February was a success.
Continuing allergen immunotherapy for longer than one year should lead to a higher treatment success!
To ensure the maintenance of the readership’s interest, I propose to occasionally change the format of these monthly newsletters while still maintaining a "ˆbest-evidence” approach.
When is the best time to do allergen-specific IgE serological testing?
This question is commonly asked by veterinarians to Nextmune colleagues, and I could simply reply that there are no studies in the literature that unequivocally address this question.
Can I perform IgE serology or intradermal testing when my patient is treated with glucocorticoids, cyclosporine, oclacitinib, or lokivetmab?
This question is highly relevant to daily veterinary practice, as most pets with active clinical signs are already treated with anti-allergic drugs by the time the discussion arises whether or not to test for IgE sensitivities before starting allergen immunotherapy.
