Biologic Therapy for Severe Asthma

What is biologic therapy?

Biologic therapy uses proteins from living organisms. When injecting these proteins, we target the specific parts of your immune system that play a part in your asthma. The therapy can be helpful when inhaled corticosteroids have not worked.

Am I a candidate for biologic therapy?

This treatment is for moderate to severe asthma patients. Extensive testing is necessary prior to starting biologics. If you are interested, ask your provider if you may be eligible.

Why use biologic therapy?

When other medicines have failed to control symptoms like shortness of breath and coughing, biologics can often help. The therapy may prevent you from having asthma attacks, lower your oral steroid use and lessen your asthma attack intensity.

What are my options if I don’t qualify for biologic therapy?

Biologics don’t work for everyone. If you are not a candidate for biologic therapy, there are other treatments that can reduce your asthma symptoms. As part of your personalized care plan, our asthma physicians can recommend which treatment is best for you.

Take the Next Step 

If you have trouble breathing, chest tightness, wheezing or a chronic cough, these may be signs of asthma. Ask your primary care provider for a referral to the Advanced Lung Disease Center. We will be glad to evaluate you and advise you on a care plan at our clinic.
