Is there a generic version of Xolair?

There is currently no generic version of Xolair available. Do not confuse Xolair's generic name, omalizumab, with a generic version of the drug.

These laws and regulations do not allow companies to manufacture generic versions of biologic drugs. A generic Xolair may never be available unless the laws and regulations change.
