New Interdisciplinary Allergy Center at Vivantes Spandau Hospital also treats drug intolerances

The Interdisciplinary Allergy Center at Vivantes Spandau Hospital will open in March. In addition to insect venom, food and pollen allergies, the center also specializes in medication intolerances.

"Allergies and intolerances are on the rise in the population. Various organ systems can be affected, which makes allergology a special challenge and an interdisciplinary specialty," explains center director and senior physician Dr. Anne Henschel.

Concentrated competence

Allergology has been a medical focus of the clinic for many years. The allergy consultation hours have now been further developed and the Interdisciplinary Allergy Center has been established. This means that the strengths and knowledge of dermatology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, nutritional medicine and laboratory medicine can be pooled and interdisciplinary, modern allergology diagnostics and treatment can be offered.

Allergology only in a few clinics possible

"Only a few clinics offer treatment for allergies, because the anamnesis and diagnostics are very complex and the therapy is complex," explains Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Harth, head physician of the Clinic for Dermatology and Allergology at Vivantes Spandau Hospital. On the other hand, allergic diseases are a widespread disease.

When medications trigger allergies

Drug intolerances can be dangerous. In particular painkillers, antibiotics but also cardiovascular drugs can cause allergic reactions and often lead to rescue actions.

Insect venom allergy: inpatient hyposensitization

One more offer: Especially for insect venom allergy sufferers with severe anaphylaxis, there is a short-term inpatient hyposensitization with subsequent outpatient therapy.
