Description

Imagine if there was a substance made from living organisms or a by-product of living organisms that could stimulate or restore the ability of the immune system to battle allergies in individuals with asthma. The occurrence of allergy asthmatic attacks would be reduced, trips to the emergency room would decrease, and individuals sensitive to climate changes (especially those who travel frequently) would be able to do so without the telephone number of local hospitals. In mid 2003, the approval for such a product was granted.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss the significance of asthma as a healthcare disorder.

2. Explain the relationship of IgE to the symptoms that are seen in patients with an allergic response.

3. Describe the mechanism of action of omalizumab (Xolair), the dosing, the administration, and the required injection technique.

4. Describe the findings in the clinical trials, the identified side effects, and how patient education for using omalizumab (Xolair) should occur.
