What’s the big deal about Xolair: What is it and how does it reduce allergic reactions to foods?

April 5 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Xolair® (brand name for omalizumab) received U.S. approval for reducing reactions to foods after accidental exposure. Xolair is the first approved medication for food allergy.

While there is excitement by the possibilities for Xolair, it’s important to understand what the treatment delivers. Join us to hear directly from the senior investigator involved with OUtMATCH, the clinical trial which assessed this medication and led to its approval in the U.S. Register now and submit your questions in advance of the session.

What the webinar is about: Learn what Xolair is and how it works, who the target patient is for this medication, along with the objectives, treatment protocols and results of the OUtMATCH clinical trial. There will also be a discussion on the importance of this first step in paving the way for future food allergy treatments.

Who is presenting: Dr. Sharon Chinthrajah, Acting Director of the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research where she leads the team to conduct novel and impactful Phase 1-3 translational studies in food allergy, asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, COVID and influenza.
