For many years now asthma has controlled my life instead of me controlling it. My life was undersiege from wheezing, inhalers and steriods. My asthma was uncontrolable I attended a problem asthma clinic which became my second home. I was constanly in and out of hospital and struggling to keep up with school work. I felt that nothing would work for me but then i was told about a clinical trial involving a new drug called xolair (omalizumab). I jumped at the chance. The results were amazing I can live my life now i am now completely off prednisolone and have never had to use my salbutamol inhalers. This new drug is truly amaxing from those who suffer from allergic asthma. The only thing is due to the cost of this medication many people are being denied this life saving treatment which has to change!!!!
