Learn about the latest treatment modalities, various biologic agents, and other methods of therapy available for patients with uncontrolled and severe asthma through this virtual patient tour. A short series of videos will take you on a tour of the journey patients Arlene Wilson and Clark Lane experienced with severe asthma from diagnosis to treatment. Each patient’s case will discuss the key points and optimal strategies for evaluating and managing the disease. Participants can also view a short video on the inflammation in asthma which will introduce characters such as Edna, the eosinophil; Allie, the allergen; Thomas L. Peters, the thymic stromal lymphopoietin, and a host of others.


  1. Describe the key roles of inflammatory cells in severe asthma.
  2. Match therapeutic options to the appropriate inflammatory pathways/cells blocked.
  3. Apply appropriate management options to treat patients with difficult-to-control and severe asthma.
