Anti-IL-5 Therapy Eligibility Characteristics Examined in Adult-Onset Asthma

In an unselected cohort of consecutive patients with adult-onset asthma, 5.9% had severe asthma and 2% were eligible for anti-interleukin (IL)-5 therapy, according to the results of the Seinäjoki Adult Asthma Study (SAAS; Identifier: NCT02733016 ) published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice .

Recent research has identified a number of different asthma phenotypes that benefit from particular treatment approaches. Age is a critical factor in determining phenotype. Adult-onset asthma is often characterized by less responsiveness to inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), is often nonatopic, and has a poorer prognosis. Several subtypes of adult-onset asthma have been proposed, including obesity-related, smoking, severe obstructive, mild to moderate/well-controlled, atopic asthma, and late-onset eosinophilic asthma, which is often severe. Antibodies against the IL-5 pathway were developed to treat late-onset eosinophilic steroid-resistant asthma. However, the prevalence of severe asthma and the number of adults with asthma who may derive benefit from anti-IL-5 therapy are not known.

I recently went to my doctors and they told me I have asthma but I do not agree, I have had a chest infection and that's all. Can I see another doctor or will that insult my GP and cause future problems for me? Hope anyone can help, Thank you

You can alway see another doc. It should not offend them. That is life. You are the consumer. They are offering you a services. You shop around for insurance, cars etc. YOu should shop around for a good doc that you trust.


That's not a prognosis. That's a diagnosis. A prognosis is a forecast of how the condition is likely to behave.

I've little doubt that your doctor may feel that you have 'insulted' him by seeking a second opinion, but it's your health

You have the right to see another doctor for a second opinion. If the second doctor says the same I would tend to think they're right and you're wrong though.

Doctors often make mistakes. They're human too.

I think any decent
