Eosinophilic Asthma Resource Centre
Educational platform focused on providing education in the pulmonology community and beyond
The Uncontrolled Asthma Resource Centre is an educational portal that helps healthcare professionals, pulmonologists, immunologists and allergologists optimize the management of patients with uncontrolled asthma and active eosinophilic inflammation.
Providing the latest research, along with fully available peer-reviewed articles, congress highlights videos, round table discussions, patient case studies and webcasts with key opinion leaders, the Resource Centre aims to disseminate knowledge of eosoinophilic airways disease. This freely available resource is hosted by Respiratory Medicine.
Message from Professor Jean Bousquet, Editor in Chief
'There are many sources of information on Eosinophilic asthma, but this Resource Centre is unique. It is proposed by opinion leaders who are selecting papers and interviews in a coherent way. The target audience is very large, it is of course for physicians and their patients, but also researches, policy makers and anyone interested in severe asthma. This resource Centre will help specialists to decide on the treatment and diagnosis of severe asthma and in particular, patients with high eosinophils.'
