With this collaboration, Stallergenes Greer aims to strengthen its precision medicine-based approach and the management of patients with allergies by expanding its knowledge of allergy pathophysiology and endotypes, AIT mode of action and clinical validation.

This research collaboration brings together the longstanding expertise of Stallergenes Greer in AIT and Alyatec’s competencies in research and clinical services as well as its state-of-the-art technology, including a new generation environmental exposure chamber.

“We are excited about the collaboration with Alyatec which will support Stallergenes Greer’s ambition to advance the practice of allergology. With Alyatec and its team of distinguished key opinion leaders, Stallergenes Greer will continue to build on precision medicine and personalised healthcare to significantly improve patient disease outcomes”, declared Amer Jaber, Executive VP Operations Europe and International and President of Stallergenes SAS.

This collaboration is a remarkable opportunity for Alyatec to develop precision medicine in AIT. The field of allergology is the oldest form of precision medicine as patient phenotypes are directly related to specific results provided by skin tests. We are convinced that adapting immunotherapy to the phenotype of each patient, in other words finding the right immunotherapy for the right patient, is the future of AIT,” stated Professor Frédéric de Blay, Principal investigator and Medical expert of Alyatec.
