The so-called routine procedures of primary care for allergic diseases that are currently carried out are prescriptions of anti-allergic medicines. On the other hand, a novel concept concerning existence of equilibrium states among antibody molecules in the vicinity of the receptors was proposed as early as in 1959 [1] and has been established around the end of the twentieth century [2-11]. It is evident that another novel concept can be deduced from the concept mentioned above. Namely, antibody molecules’ mutual exchanges are occurring all the time. In more detail, all of antibody molecules in the vicinity of the receptors keep attaching to and detaching from the receptors. In other words, antibodies’ replacements are occurring all the time. In addition, if allergen-specific antibodies were replaced by non-specific antibodies, causes of allergic diseases would be eliminated. It is obvious that elimination of cause of disease is an ideal treatment. In addition, the ideal treatment can be carried out extremely easily. In more detail, all you need to do is to inject your patient intradermally with a non-specific antigen preparation. Further explanation would be that the injected non-specific antigen will force the patient produce non-specific antibodies, which in turn replace allergen-specific antibodies from the surface of mast cells. An example of non-specific antigen preparation is Neurotropin, a product of Nippon Pharmaceutical Company, LTD(Osaka) consisting of extracts of rabbit skin inflamed by inoculation of Vaccinia virus.
