I somtimes get questions about different kinds of medicine. I am no doctor and can not give advice in what to choose, that you have to ask your doctor. But what I can do is writing and linking to different kinds of astma medicine so you can read about it, and then you can talk with your doctor if the medicine might be good for you.
Xolair is approved as adjunctive therapy to improve asthma control in adults and adolescents (from age twelve) with severe persistent asthma. (Printed Version: 2007; 18 (2)). Omalizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody manufactured by recombinant DNA technology that selectively binds to human immunoglobulin E (IgE). By forming complexes with circulating IgE prevented the binding of IgE to mast cells and basophils and consequently the release of inflammatory mediators. Xolair is injected.
