Summary for Patent: 8,999,339
Title:Methods for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Abstract: The present invention provides methods of treating a mammal having chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), independent of both smoking status and asthma status, with a therapeutically effective amount of an anti-IgE moiety. In accordance with the invention, COPD patients with an elevated serum IgE level may benefit from the treatment methods disclosed. In certain instances, the methods of the disclosure have been found to be useful for the treatment of COPD patients regardless of their skin test results and/or in vitro reactivity to a perennial aeroallergen. Anti-IgE moieties, in accordance with the invention, include but are not limited to any IgG antibody that selectively binds to a given mammal immunoglobulin E (e.g., human immunoglobulin E) such as humanized anti-IgE, humanized murine monoclonal antibody, and/or Omalizumab.
