Omalizumab Makes Oral Immunotherapy Treatments More Effective

AAFA Community Services ·
Combining a 16-week initial course of the medication omalizumab with oral immunotherapy (OIT) greatly improves the efficacy of OIT for children with allergies to multiple foods, new clinical trial findings show. After 36 weeks, more than 80 percent of children who received omalizumab and OIT could safely consume two-gram portions of at least two foods to which they were allergic, compared with only a third of children who received placebo and OIT.

Marie, could you tell a difference or a reaction from the sunflowers? It could be that you are okay with them. My DD is allergic to some things, but does okay with some plants or other allergens that are related. Could you talk to your doc about whether sunflowers would be a problem for you in particular?

K8SMOM2002 Last fall undecided to dry the flowers so I cut them before the birds and squirrel could get at them. Oh my word I didn't realize how much pollen was in them. So I won't be drying them this year but I will plant the seeds again next year will just have to buy them.

When i got home today one plant was broken in half and another is laying on the ground and there are seeds all over the side walk, so think they are having a good time. I'm not going to have a good time cleaning up their mess....lol...

AAFA Community Services ·
Did you know pollen might be responsible for your food allergy? If your mouth or throat itch when you eat certain fruit or vegetables, you could have oral allergy syndrome (OAS). And you would have a pollen allergy to thank for that.

The last column isn’t being over lapped by all the boxes . This happens to me when I have mango , pineapple and tomatoes it’s only during certain seasons. I’m allergic to grass , willow tree, ragweed . I’m also allergic to latex which can have cross reactions as well . Such as with the skin of some Mellon’s and avocado .

Thank you for sharing this information. My allergist mentioned OAS but I didn’t quite understand. This article is great. Now I understand why peach salsa makes my mouth feel odd!

It’s better now . I didn’t realize watermelon crosses with grass . I know it does with latex and also ragweed. Also the list make sense since I can’t meet broccoli and cauliflower.
