Why Omalizumab Has the Potential to Be a ‘Life-Changing’ Food Allergy Medication

Watch this video to see Robert Wood, Director of Pediatric Allergy and Immunology at Johns Hopkins, discuss results that suggest omalizumab has the potential to be a ‘life-changing’ medication for patients with food allergy, including those with multiple food allergies.

"The day-to-day life of patients with food allergy is consumed by fear of accidental exposure to food allergens," says Robert Wood , director of the Eudowood Division of Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, and the study's principal investigator. "Our findings have the potential to be very meaningful, and potentially even life-changing, for people with food allergies."
