FDA approves pill that could replace some allergy shots

Posted by @Margaret_Marie in Healthy Living, Apr 3, 2014

The Food and Drug Administration approved the first pill that could replace allergy shots. The pill only works against certain grass pollens and takes several months to start working. James Li, chairman of the division of allergy and immunology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and president of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, says this pill "is a significant advance and certainly one of the few brand new products we've had in quite a long time."
