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.
Efficacy and safety of dupilumab as add-on therapy
Commentary by Dr. William W. Busse
Sally Wenzel and colleagues presented the findings of a large phase 2b study that evaluated the effects of dupilumab, an IL-4/IL-13 receptor antagonist, in patients with severe asthma. Earlier studies with dupilumab had shown that the administration of this monoclonal antibody allowed for the successful reduction of concomitant use of inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta-agonists without loss of asthma control and suggested that this particular monoclonal antibody may provide additional benefit for severe asthma patients with uncontrolled asthma despite optimal therapy with …
