Biologic treatment in severe eosinophilic asthma; what matters most for patients?
Using a case study of a patient with severe eosinophilic asthma, the webinar will address:
How can I identify patients with severe asthma who are suitable for biologic therapy?
What are the current treatment options?
Are all biologics the same? Can we differentiate them using their pharmacological properties and clinical efficacy and safety results?
