Prescribing information


Xolair is indicated as add-on therapy for the treatment of chronic spontaneous urticaria in adult and adolescent (12 years and above) patients with inadequate response to H1-antihistamine treatment.1

A Worldwide Antihistamine-Refractory chronic urticaria (CU) patient Evaluation (AWARE) is a global prospective, non-interventional study of chronic urticaria in the real-world setting.2

Dr Sinisa Savic, Consultant Immunologist and Clinician Scientist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, gives an overview of findings from the global AWARE study and how they can help shape the future of clinical practice in CSU.
