Exploring the Multiple Facets of Type 2 Inflammation in Uncontrolled Persistent Asthma: A New Approach in Asthma Management

Learning objectives:
This interactive symposium will explore the impact of type 2 inflammation in patients with uncontrolled persistent asthma, including the underlying pathophysiology, benefits and limitations of inflammatory biomarkers, and the challenges faced by physicians when selecting a biologic treatment strategy—using case studies, panel discussion, and Q&A to consolidate learnings. The latest clinical data on biologics will be presented, focusing on the key asthma control goals of reducing exacerbations and oral corticosteroid (OCS) use, and improving lung function and quality of life.

Share specific evidences that public health burden of chronci allergic disease is increasing in terms of prevalence, complexity and severity.

Symptoms of HDM Associated AR negatively affect patients’ including children health-related quality of life. patients with uncontrolled AR are
at risk of developping allergic asthma, failing in their personal and professional projetcs AR strengthen the scientific evidence that: successful
treatment of symptoms with AIT improves the HRQL but also modify the course of the disease, by showing long-term benefits and protection
an important consideration for parents whose children’s AR symptoms are not controlled.
