The Stallergenes company informs us that the technical problems related to the production of their desensitization vaccines gradually disappear (the problems were due to some IT problems linked to their new SAP system).
Some of the vaccines will be available in May:
CONCERNING THE NEXT VACCINES :
1. The Staloral sublingual way for the following extracts :
Dermatophagus Pteronyssinus reference 315
D.Pteronyssinus/D. Farinae reference 350
5 grass mixture reference 688
Betulaceae reference 702
Birch reference 615
Alder / Birch / Hazel reference 752
Cat dander reference 507
Alternaria reference 400
Goosefoot reference 605
will be available from May.
Mixtures are not yet available.
If you are taking a mix like Grasses 5 / Betulaceae (50% / 50%), it is not currently available,
However ou can always order them separately ( grass and betulaceae separated) and take only half the dose, this will give the same result.
2. Subcutaneous vaccines with delayed effect Alustal and Phostal:
They are not yet available.
We will inform you ASAP when these vaccines will we again be disponible on the market (as soon as we are informed by Stallergenes).
Orders given before March the 1st , were unfortunately cancelled by Stallergenes.
You will have to submit a new prescription to your pharmacist.
Dr. Masy and Dr. Delabie are at to your disposal to give you new prescriptions .
For this, you can contact our secretary at phone number 02/363 12 63.
Remember, also, to come to your annual check with your desensitization plan correctly filled in.
Stallergenes has suddenly interrupted the production of their vaccines.
Can I stop the desensitization?
1 / We inform and reassure you that there is no problem to suddenly stop the desensitization.
2 / The effect of what was taken is NOT LOST, this is already a first step that enabled you to form blocking antibodies for the future.
The cumulative effect for the 3 years of desensitization should only be catched up with the schedule (e.g. if you lost 6 months, you will have to catch up to 6 months).
2 / All retakes must be made with caution, i.e. very gradually.
Our office is at your disposal to explain how the retake has to occur.
Feel free to contact the secretary at phone number 02/363 12 63.
Each patient is a separate case and needs a separate retake scheme
