A total of 63 asthmatic patients were given the course of the jab or a series of injections of a dummy drug over two or three months.
Researchers found it cut asthma attacks or symptoms by a third.
In another trial, an injection every week over a month and half, cut the amount of runny noses and weepy eyes by almost 39 per cent.
Quality of life was boosted by 42 per cent, they added.
So there is a basis for it (even though it sounds more like the old allergy treatments of weekly shots than a vaccine).
Yes, clearly there’s something to it, but the article is still full of “maybe” and “could.” And it does sound like an update of the old allergy shots, which have been around for a couple of generations.
