Approximately 12 million children and adults in the United States have inadequately controlled asthma, many with severe asthma. In this video webcast of a satellite symposium held during CHEST 2018, Reynold Panettieri, Jr, MD, and Nicola Hanania, MD, MS, discuss the importance of and how to differentiate severe from uncontrolled asthma. They review what is known about phenotypes of severe asthma and key biomarkers. Discussion is focused on the evidence for and role of targeted biologics for severe asthma phenotypes as recommended in the 2018 Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) guidelines. The use of a shared decision-making tool is also explored.
