  • Food Allergen Exposure, Assessed on Patient-reported Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks through Week 52 ]
  • Food-allergic Reactions As Assessed by the Ewan Scale [ Time Frame: Through Week 52 ]
  • Nonserious Food-related Adverse Events (AEs) and Other Nonserious AEs [ Time Frame: Through Week 52 ]

Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: November 2006
Primary Completion Date: June 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Drug: omalizumab
SC repeating dose


Ages Eligible for Study:   6 Years to 75 Years   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Completion of last visit (or early termination visit, if applicable) for Study Q2788g
  • Signed Informed Consent Form
  • Use of an effective method of contraception for females of childbearing potential
  • Body weight ≥ 20 kg and ≤ 150 kg
  • IgE level ≤ 1300 IU/mL (Note: Subjects with an IgE < 30 IU/mL will be dosed at the lowest level on the dosing table [30 IU/mL], thus enabling better understanding of the role of Xolair in peanut allergic subjects who have low total IgE levels.)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Current participation in another investigational study
  • Pregnancy or lactation
  • History of brittle asthma
  • Aspirin-sensitive asthma
  • Known hypersensitivity to any ingredients of Xolair, including its excipients (sucrose, histidine, polysorbate 20)
  • Have a polymorrphonuclear count <1500/uL
  • Use of anti-coagulants, such as warfarin (Coumadin(R)), thrombolytic enzymes, or ticlopidine
  • Current diagnosis of cancer, current investigation for possible cancer, or history of cancer (not including non-melanoma skin cancer)
  • Thrombocytopenia as evidenced by a platelet count < 100,000/uL
  • Any systemic condition requiring regular administration of an immunoglobulin
