August 23 2023: POST-ORGASMIC ILLNESS SYNDROME SUCCESSFULLY TREATED WITH OMALIZUMAB (T J)

Use a youtube downloader to download and watch the video.

NSAIDs, high dose antihistamine therapy and SSRIs were considered ineffective.
Treatment: 3 months of therapy with 300 mg Omalizumab every 4 weeks. Patient had improvement of symptoms 3 days after start of therapy. I will add this to the pois paper treatment thread.

10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

Very interesting case report !
Sadly, they do not share how they came to decide to try omalizumab ( Xolair) for POIS.  It is an allergic asthma treatment, and also treats urticaria (hives). The patient's symptoms were nausea and a decline of cognitive functions, starting 5 minutes after O, and his blood tests were normal, so I wonder how the immunology department came to this decision.

Xolair works essentially by depleting free IgE antigens. so that basophils, mast cells, and dendritic cells are gradually down-regulated.  This case report goes in line with the last article of the late Dr. Waldinger, that POIS is an auto-immune disorder.

The reason she tried it is because desensitization works in some cases and antihistamines were ineffective. The high affinity receptors for IgE are downregulated on the cells you mentioned not the cells themselves. Omalizumab is used in MC disorders as mast cell stabilizer when other MC stabilizers fail to be effective. Can we move the discussion to this thread? https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=4412.0

Ok, thanks.  I just checked and it seems that omalizumab has been used "off label" for MCAS for some time now ( https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30954641/ ).   

Muon, you seem to know who "T J" is, and where is here clinic.  Am I right ?

Has anyone been able to get hold of the article from the youtube video using omalizumab ( Xolair) for POIS ?
I wish I could test this medication seems promising but expensive.
Used by injections. The standard price for one of these injections costs more that 200euros or even close to about 250euros. Medical healthcare pays most of it back here in my country for those suffering from severe asthma. But if you have POIS then you must pay the full amount!  Part of our problem is that we still don't have a proper diagnoses for POIS.
A Proper diagnoses would be such an advantage and this alone does not seem fair. Many people get help with their illnesses from government, but if you have POIS everything is cut down and often left in the dark with administration. My doctor recognises that I have POIS but can not organise me all the benefits that I'd normally be entitled to get because of these administrative issues with POIS! :(

Hi !

Thank you very much for the link to this article in French. I live in France and would like to contact this urologist via her e-mail address. Did you look for the e-mail address and find it ? If not, I'll give her a call. Have a very good day and lots of courage to all of you in this ordeal that is POIS.

Hi Gogo,

Sorry I don't have her email.
I noticed this French urologist seems to have been quiet active in publishing her research in her branch and indeed seems like she could be good contact for POISers.
