Treatment of Severe Asthma: Updates from the Guidelines, Part 1

October 20, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am CDT

Asthma is the most common chronic respiratory disease, resulting in $15 billion in healthcare expenditures per year. Recent advances in asthma therapy have included several biologic agents that modify Th2 inflammation. The European Respiratory Society (ERS), in conjunction with the American Thoracic Society (ATS), recently completed guidelines for severe asthma. We will discuss the limitations of the guidelines and address some key updates in severe asthma management that are not formally addressed in the current guidelines, but are clinical conundrums in clinical practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the treatment of the Th2 asthmatics and how to choose a biological agent in children and adults.
  • Discuss the mechanisms involved in anti-IL-5 treatment failure.
