Controlling and Preventing Asthma Progression and Severity in Kids with Omalizumab

Primary Objective

Studies show that up to 80% of children ages 2 to 3 years old who have allergies and multiple wheezing episodes will eventually develop asthma. What if there were a way to reduce the risk of asthma developing in young children? Researchers across the United States are studying weather Xolair can help prevent lasting, severe asthma and new allergies from developing, or reduce the severity of existing ones, in preschool-age children. If your child is 2 or 3 years old, he or she may be eligible to participate in this clinical study.
