Asthma is a common, chronic, and heterogeneous disease that can result in poor quality of life and severe, life-threatening exacerbations despite standard controller therapy. Type 2 inflammation, mediated by cytokines such as IL-4, IL-5, and IL-13, occurs in about 50% of patients with asthma and has emerged as a unifying feature of classically defined allergic diseases and a range of other inflammatory diseases. In this activity, an expert explains the advances in understanding of the pathogenesis of asthma and the targeted treatments that have been developed as a result. You will hear expert insights into the use of available and emerging biologic therapies, including how to identify children and adults who may be eligible for these therapies. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Identify patients who would likely benefit from targeted therapy, considering the relationship between type 2 inflammation, moderate to severe asthma, and comorbid conditions such as atopic dermatitis; Incorporate evidence-based and guideline-directed treatment for pediatric and adult patients with moderate to severe asthma into customized management plans; and Use techniques to educate and communicate with patients and caregivers to engage them in care and improve adherence to individualized treatment plans.
