What needs to change about severe asthma treatment

By Adem Lewis / in , , , , , , /

As a result of this report we want to make sure that people understand that asthma is far from solved and severe asthma is a significant problem. We know that there are lots of new treatments coming down the pipeline for eosinophilic asthma which is fantastic and we hope they’ll be made available. And we hope that people will be able to access them when that’s the right treatment for them. But there is a whole other side of severe asthma that at the moment has no potential treatments in the pipeline. We’re hoping that this report will really send up a flare to people – make people aware that we’ve got a lot of work to do and that we need to bring people together internationally, and create an infrastructure through registries for severe asthma, international partnerships working with industry and researchers and academics and so on, to really work together in order to make a significant change. And unless we start to do that collectively, we could still be in the same situation in 10 years time
