  • A positive specific IgE against Der pte or Der far (≥Class 2; ≥0.70 KU/L) documenting in the last 5 years.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • FEV1 < 70% of predicted value at screening after adequate pharmacologic treatment.
  • Uncontrolled or severe asthma.
  • A clinically relevant history of symptomatic perennial allergic rhinitis and/or conjunctivitis caused by an allergen, to which the subject is regularly exposed and sensitized.
  • History of severe asthma exacerbation or emergency room visit or admission for asthma in the previous 12 months.
  • At screening, current symptoms of, or treatment for, upper respiratory tract infection, acute sinusitis, acute otitis media or other relevant infection (serous otitis media is not an exclusion criterion).

  • Previous treatment by other allergen concomitant IT or immunotherapy with HDM extracts within the previous 5 years (initiation of subcutaneous immunotherapy is acceptable if treatment has been discontinued before reaching maintenance dose; for SLIT 3 months in the last 5 years is accepted).
  • History of anaphylactic shock due to e.g. food, insect venom, exercise or drug.
