This enduring activity will allow the participant to focus on understanding the strategies for effectively managing moderate-to-severe asthma, to describe the clinical evidence for the use of biologics, to use evidence based strategies to select the optimal therapy for the right patient at the right time, and to understand strategies to provide more effective patient communication to promote better outcomes. Listen to experts discuss the etiopathology of asthma; the different treatment options available; and learn about the various biologics available to manage more advanced and uncontrolled moderate-to-severe asthma, as well as what patient-specific considerations might be taken into account when deciding to use biologics.


This educational activity is designed to meet the identified needs of U.S.-based allergists, immunologists, respiratory technicians, and other health care providers involved in the care of adult and pediatric patients with moderate-to-severe asthma.


  • Describe the clinical evidence for approved and investigational biologics for the treatment of moderate-to-severe asthma
  • Identify evidence-based strategies to effectively select the right therapy for the right patient at the most optimal point of care
  • Detail strategies to provide more effective patient-centered communication and education to promote better outcomes
