How does Phleum Pratense work?

Phleum pratense in very small doses is thought to desensitize the body to grass pollen allergies.

Are there safety concerns?

Phleum pratense seems safe for most adults and children aged 3-16 years. When used under the tongue, Phleum pratense can cause itching and irritation of the mouth and nose, blisters in the mouth, and runny nose. When given by injection, it can cause irritation where the needle entered the skin.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of Phleum pratense during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Dosing considerations for Phleum Pratense.

The following doses have been studied in scientific research:

  • For hay fever: 75,000 units of a specific standardized Phleum pratense allergen product (Grazax, Alk Abello) daily, starting 8 weeks before grass pollen season starts and continued until it ends.
  • For hay fever: 100,000 units of a specific Phleum pratense allergen product (Alutard SQ, Alk Abello) twice weekly starting 8 weeks before grass pollen season starts and continued until it ends.
