Inadequately Managed Allergies Cause Significant Economic Burden in Europe

New research indicates that avoidable indirect costs per patient insufficiently treated for allergy equal 2,405.00 Euros per year due to absence from work and reduced working capacity. On the other hand, appropriate therapy is available at an average cost of 125 Euros per patient annually, which represents only 5% of the cost of untreated disease.

“Between 55 and 151 billion Euros EU wide could be saved every year by better management of allergies,” said Dr. Torsten Zuberbier, lead author of the Allergy study.
