AWESOME!!! I know that SLIT is awesome for environmental allergies. My almost 6 yr old daughter has been getting treatment for her enviros for 2 years, and has made unbelievable progress, and even lost a few lesser allergies, while all are so amazingly better I can barely believe it! (We observe the results in real life, not just with testing. She can now play in grass w/out head to toe hives!!!) I do think that SLIT will be a viable option for some food allergies. What exciting news!
