MADISON, Wis., Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Allovate, LLC, has signed an agreement with Restore Health, a company specializing in personalized medicine, for the exclusive rights to provide Allerdent™, a new personalized therapeutic toothpaste system for people suffering from allergic rhinitis. Allerdent™ is designed for daily use as part of a normal tooth-brushing regimen and enables allergy sufferers to incorporate immunotherapeutic allergy treatment into their routine activity. Impetus for this proprietary innovation came from the high drop-out rates of people undergoing other forms of immunotherapy. The goal of incorporating the allergy treatment into the daily activity of brushing one's teeth is to increase adherence and create more effective outcomes. This novel treatment method is available by prescription.
Shara Rudner, RPh., FIACP, FACA, Director, Clinical Trials Group for Restore Health, partnered with the research team that developed the new toothpaste delivery system. The research results were published in the July/August 2014 issue: International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding. "The research shows that using a toothpaste delivery system to treat patients with seasonal allergies is very promising," said Dr. Rudner. William Reisacher, MD, FACS, FAAOA, a faculty otolaryngic allergist at Weill-Cornell Medical College who co-authored the study with Rudner, added, "This novel approach to immunotherapy addresses the underlying cause of allergies without disrupting a normal lifestyle."
Allovate, LLC is a specialty biopharmaceutical company that specializes in allergen-specific immunotherapy for treating allergic diseases.
Under the agreement, Restore Health has limited exclusivity as the sole servicing agent for Allerdent™. The system, Allerdent™, was recently featured on CBS News as another treatment option for physicians to prescribe to their patients who may be using prescribed or over-the-counter medicines to relieve seasonal allergy symptoms.
"Our agreement to provide Allerdent™ system will ensure our customers have immediate access to this new treatment option," said Murray I. Firestone, Ph.D., President of Restore Health. "Restore is always working to accelerate the availability of novel therapies, from 'bench to bedside'."
