About ALK Abelló:
ALK is a global pharmaceutical company focusing on allergy treatment, prevention and diagnosis. We are devoted to improving quality of life for people with allergies by developing pharmaceutical products that target the actual cause of allergy.
ALK is the world leader in allergy vaccination (immunotherapy) -- a unique treatment that induces a protective immune response which reduces and potentially halts the allergic reaction.
Allergy vaccination is traditionally administered as subcutaneous injections or sublingual droplets. Our aim is to extend the use of allergy vaccination by introducing convenient, tablet-based vaccines, thereby offering many more patients a causal allergy treatment.
Following this strategy, the world's first tablet-based vaccine against grass pollen allergy, GRAZAX®, was launched in Europe in 2006. In 2009, GRAZAX® was approved as a disease modifying allergy treatment and GRAZAX® is now the only registered tablet treatment against grass pollen allergy with documented sustained effect after completion of treatment.
ALK has more than 1,500 employees with subsidiaries, production facilities and distributors worldwide. The company is headquartered in Hørsholm, Denmark and listed on NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen A/S.
