Our Story

Our Story

We take the guesswork out of allergy. We provide research-based information and services you can trust. We’re here to help you unleash your full potential when living with allergy.

The beginning

We know about allergy. After all, our parent company, ALK, has been researching allergies and pioneering allergy innovations for more than 95 years.

Our story begins in Denmark in 1923. Peter Barfod, a pharmacist, and Kaj Baagøe, a physician, recorded the first pharmaceutically manufactured allergy preparation. Since then ALK has led the way in allergy treatment, globally.

Today

The number of people with allergies around the world is increasing. Allergy is often downplayed or even dismissed as nothing more than a nuisance.
