Adverse Drug Reaction and Desensitization Program

The Adverse Drug Reaction and Desensitization Program serves patients with a specific drug allergy and provides the opportunity to receive the first line treatment that is essential to their medical care. 

Desensitization refers to a method of administering a medication to which patients are allergic.  This program is headed by Mariana Castells, MD, PhD, who pioneered this form of interventional allergy management.  The program has performed several thousand desensitizations since its inception in 1995 and has supported several clinical studies, which have led to the publication of multiple original articles, review articles, and book chapters.
