  • No absolute contraindications to venom immunotherapy are known.

    However, the risk of serious systemic anaphylactic reactions to venom or any potent allergenic extract suggests a number of preexisting conditions that should be considered relative contraindications. Among those conditions are acute infections, immune disease, severe cardiac disease, and treatment with ß-adrenergic antagonist drugs (beta-blockers) and angiotensin inhibitors (ACE-inhibitors).
