AbstractAn innovation in biotechnology: for the first time, researchers from MCI Innsbruck and the University of Salzburg have manufactured and purified a plant-based allergen in a green alga and opened the door to a specific immunotherapy against allergies. Their vision: to replace the unpleasant injection with oral administration, as its production is both simple and cost-effective.
