Hello and hope you are doing well.
Basically the WBC or White blood cells serve to help the body to fight infections. Antibodies are produced to do this function. These antibodies are produced by a kind of WBC called plasma cells. These antibodies are proteins in structure. There are different types of antibodies called ImmunoglobulinsIg; IgA ,IgG, IgD, IgEand IgM, depending on their functioning capacity.
Increased IgG levels are generally indicative of an infection. However, Xolair inhibits the binding of IgE to the high-affinity IgE receptor on the surface of mast cells and basophils. This prevents asthmatic attacks.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
I suffer from severe allergy induced sinusitis/ asthma. I also get hives that make me want to rip my skin off. Here in the past year, I have been hospitalized more frequently. September 2014. I spent 4 days in the hospital. And then in February-March, I was hospitalized for 6 days. Each time receiving solumedrol and antibiotics. Then going home on prednisone and antibiotics. Here at the midle of march, I once again am getting sick . I just started xolair injectons 4 days ago. And yet another dose of prednisone.
I am misserable. My sinuses are a wreck. My asthma and allergies are out of control. The breathing treatments do not seem to be helping much.
I am looking to schedule sinus Surgery here in the near future. Depending if I can stay well enough to get clearance to go under anesthesia for the two hour procedure. I sure hope something changes soon. I am afraid that I will be returning to the hospital for treatment once again, before surgery can be preformed. I am so misserable I don't know what to do anymore.
