Clinical Issues in Severe AsthmaDebates and Discussions About New Upstream Treatment Avenues
This activity is jointly provided by Global Education Group and Integritas Communications.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from AstraZeneca
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of pulmonologists, clinical immunologists, and other specialist clinicians who treat patients with severe asthma.
This live Clinical Issues™in Severe Asthma program has been designed to engage and educate attendees while promoting critical thinking. Using a discussion-based format, expert faculty will examine various sides of key clinical issues—including the role of the epithelium in asthma development and progression, mechanisms underlying asthma phenotypes, the rationale for therapies that target disease upstream of the common T2-high and T-low pathways, recent clinical trial evidence for newer pharmacotherapies, and the interpretation and use of biomarkers within management. This program will also expand on attendee engagement by incorporating the clinical experience and unique challenges of the broader asthma community via results from previously deployed learner surveys. In this way, Clinical Issues™ in Severe Asthma intends to deliver not only expert recommendations but learner insights for optimizing severe asthma management across diverse patient populations.
Upon completion of this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Describe severe asthma pathophysiology, including the upstream role of TSLP and implications for treatment
- Discuss the mechanisms of action and clinical profiles of new targeted therapies for severe asthma, including those targeting TSLP
- Construct treatment regimens for patients with severe asthma with new targeted agents based on symptoms, disease presentation, patient preferences, and shared clinical decision making
