• The peer review literature compared the effectiveness of treating allergic rhinitis (AR) with subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) versus sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) for allergen-induced rhinoconjunctivitis.
• The findings showed that there is no clear evidence of effectiveness between SCIT and SLIT for reducing AR symptoms. SLIT has been associated with cost savings with comparison to SCIT.
• The findings indicated that SLIT may be the preferred route for immunotherapy because of its convenience, comparable efficacy, safety and cost.
