Severe Asthma: Novel Concepts & Therapeutics
New York Academy of Sciences
Asthma is a chronic, heterogeneous inflammatory disease of the airways, affecting approximately 300 million people worldwide. Severe asthma is defined as an uncontrolled or only partially controlled form of asthma despite intensive treatment. It affects 5-10% of the adult asthma population and is associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and consumption of health care resources. Limited knowledge of the disease mechanisms is the greatest obstacle to the development of novel treatments. This symposium will focus on novel insights into the pathophysiology of severe asthma as well as on offering perspectives on potential new therapeutic opportunities. 7 World Trade Center $70-$350
