Resumen

HERRERA-GARCIA, José Carlos et al. Administration of omalizumab in Mexican patients diagnosed with moderate-severe non-atopic asthma. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.6, pp.833-839. ISSN 0186-4866.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24245/mim.v34i6.2091.

OBJECTIVE

To determine the clinical improvement in patients diagnosed with moderate-severe non-atopic asthma in treatment with omalizumab.

MATERIAL AND METHOD

A prospective and observational study was made from January 1st 2017 to January 1st 2018 in adult patients who, despite daily treatment with or without maintenance oral corticosteroids, had uncontrolled moderate to severe non-atopic asthma; patients were assigned to receive omalizumab at doses of IgE levels. The primary endpoint was the change in the clinical and functional parameters of the patients by means of Asthma Control Test.

RESULTS

There were included 20 patients. After 52 weeks of administration of omalizumab they showed a moderate increase in FEV1 and in clinical and functional parameters. The symptomatic improvement of the patients was mainly considered by an increase of 10 to 20 points in Asthma Control Test. Good tolerance to the drug was also observed, without any serious adverse effects, as well as improvement in the quality of life of the patients.

CONCLUSIONS

Omalizumab has a therapeutic role in moderate to severe non-atopic asthma. Our results support the clinical efficacy of omalizumab in Mexican non-atopic asthmatic patients.
