The objective of this work has been to provide an update on the drug and non-drug treatments of chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) in adults and children, based on data from the literature reviewed by a working group with no conflicts of interest with respect to the pharmaceutical industry and pharmacovigilance.
The physician will thus be able to use this data to help make decisions for each patient.
