Thursday 21st March 2019, 1PM UK Time
Presented by Kathryn Cuddy MVB CertAVP(VD) MRCVS RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Veterinary Dermatology
Allergen-specific immunotherapy (ASIT) is the oldest form of treatment of atopic dermatitis, yet has fallen out of favour in general practice in recent years. This is mainly due to the development of other therapies, but also due to misconceptions and confusion regarding its use. ASIT is the only treatment for allergy that can modify, or reverse, at least part of the pathogenesis of this condition, both alleviating clinical signs and preventing progression of disease. This webinar will feature a practical approach to immunotherapy, with emphasis on the following areas:
- How to ensure you have the correct diagnosis
- When and how to perform allergy testing
- How to interpret your results
- Efficacy of ASIT
- ASIT protocols and monitoring
- ASIT: the myths and misconceptions
- Practical case examples
