Get special shots for better asthma control
Similar to allergy injections, Xolair® is injected subcutaneously every month to treat moderate to severe asthma or hives. Xolair® treats patients whose asthma is not controlled by inhalers. When you breathe in an allergen, the body releases IgE, which attaches to the allergen and the surface of inflammatory cells, causing the airways to swell and narrow. Xolair® captures the IgE and prevents inflammation.
