Date:11/14/2009

The FDA is reviewing preliminary safety information on XOLAIR allergic asthma medication. Problems with XOLAIR have been linked to heart attack and stroke. The Onder Law Firm is offering a free case review to those or families of those who may have experienced serious health problems after taking XOLAIR.

St. Louis, MO (Vocus) November 14, 2009 -- The FDA is evaluating interim safety findings from Genentech, Inc. in an ongoing study of XOLAIR problems. XOLAIR (omalizumab) is an injected drug for asthma related allergies. The interim results of this study, which is being conducted by the drug’s manufacturer, suggests an increased number of cardiovascular (heart attack) and cerebrovascular (stroke) adverse events in a group of patients using Xolair compared to a group of patients not given the drug (control group).

The possible association has been identified based on interim results from an ongoing study of Xolair known as Evaluating the Clinical Effectiveness and Long-Term Safety in Patients with Moderate to Severe Asthma (EXCELS). The results this study are not expected until 2012. Although the FDA and the drug manufacturer have not recalled XOLAIR, the FDA wants consumers to be aware of increased risks from taking XOLAIR, specifically heart attack/heart disease and stroke.

The FDA originally approved XOLAIR in 2003 but announced in February of 2007 that it was requesting a stronger warning for XOLAIR because it may cause anaphylaxis, a reaction that may include trouble breathing, chest tightness, dizziness, fainting, itching and hives, and swelling of the mouth and throat.
