Asthma Treatment with Xolair for Severe Asthma

Asthma treatment for severe asthmatics. Those asthmatics that are on triple therapy and still do not have control could be on oral steroids every day. There is another therapy of anti-IgE called Xolair or omalizumab that binds IgE or allergy antibodies. This gives allergy control for asthma and allergic rhinitis. You have to qualify for Xolair by having positive skin prick testing to allergens and an elevated IgE level. We have had wonderful results with this therapy.
