I will be starting Xolair after I am discharged from the hospital (kidney cancer).
I would like to know what to expect.
Thanks for your comments in advance.

Xolair contains the active ingredient Omalizumab and it is not currently approved in the U.S. as a cancer treatment, it is used to treat asthma.

Are you certain that is the right name of the medication you are asking about?

Preliminary research has actually shown that while this does play a role in the immune systems recognition of cancer cells, it may increase risks of developing cancer.
