Obesity: a serious disease that deserves serious treatment
Obesity is the most prevalent disease in Australia affecting 28% of the adult population and has become our most important health care challenge. Prevention would be the ideal. However, for those already suffering effective treatment options are desperately needed. Bariatric (weight loss) surgery is currently the most predictably effective treatment for obesity.

Trials conducted by Monash University scientists have shown that a tablet dissolved under the tongue – sublingually – may help safeguard seasonal allergic rhinitis (spring hayfever) sufferers against the deadly effects of thunderstorm asthma.
The allergen immunotherapy Oralair was tested over three years by researchers in the Department of Allergy, Immunology and Respiratory Medicine at the Central Clinical School/Alfred Health led by Professor Robyn O’Hehir.
Results showed that none of the patients with seasonal hayfever taking Oralair displayed symptoms of allergic rhinitis or asthma during the catastrophic thunderstorm asthma event in 2016, which affected thousands and claimed 10 lives.
