Abstract

The discovery of new pathobiological pathways involved in asthma chronicity and reliefs offers novel therapeutic avenues. Enhanced phenotyping criteria associated with simple biologic characterization allowed to test targeted interventions in selected patients. Long-term studies are de facto lacking but required to address their impact on the natural history of the disease. Here, the authors review all potential available therapeutics based on immunologic pathways involved in asthma pathophysiology during the last decade.
