It was a delight to be able to discuss with Martin Metz (Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany) the results of the 52-week extension study (NCT02649218), which investigated the monoclonal anti-IgE antibody, ligelizumab, in patients who had not achieved complete urticaria activity control with omalizumab.
His abstract entitled ‘Efficacy of ligelizumab in chronic spontaneous urticaria patients previously inadequately controlled with omalizumab; analysis of the Phase 2 program’ was presented at the EADV Virtual Congress, 29-31 October 2020.
