When to discontinue SCIT? And omalizumab?

When to discontinue SCIT?

As per Dr. Robert Lanier: My goal has always been minimalist. I do one 100 shots for allergy at maintenance level at practice parameter doses and discontinue as a trial- re-institute with issues.

When to discontinue omalizimab?

Dr. Robert Lanier: With Xolair, I have pursued a similar time pattern limitation of two years thinking that is the minimal time frame to achieve immune learning. I discontinue at two years with full intent of re-institution if there is deterioriation.
