I think it must have been 10-15 years ago that my old allergist brought up the possibility of Xolair (omalizumab) for my asthma, suggesting that it might help block or reduce food reactions since it's an IgE inhibitor. I ultimately decided not to take her up on it, but a decade and a bunch of clinical trials later, it's got a "breakthrough therapy designation" from the FDA for review as an allergy treatment.
