Advice on air travel

Dr Scadding describes research on the use of allergen taken by buccal absorption for treatment of allergy (Clinical, September 20).

This treatment is well established in the form of isopathy, which utilises serial succusion and dilution to render the allergen safe (and incidentally more potent) in a process akin to homoeopathy.

Unlike the peptide preparation described in the article, isopathic tablets are cheap. It would be interesting for a trial to be undertaken to compare efficacy of the new drug with its isopathic equivalent.
