Are you aware of any new treatments in development for asthma?

Would you be interested in taking part in clinical trials for new treatments?

I would be interested in clinical trials. Also looking at sublingual therapy for dust allergy.

I would be interested in clinical trials if it didn't interfere with my job.

I’m aware of the thermoplasty procedure and Xolair. Hoping for a real breakthrough.

Odactra for reaction to dust mites. At this time I am not interested in being part of trials.

Definitely interested in clinical trials. I'm not aware of any new therapies. I'm aware of NUCALA and similar biologics but they are beyond my grasp due to the cost. my insurance has denied them even though my lab tests show that I have it. How could something be so expensive! I am also award of bronchial thermoplasty.

What is Fasenra? Is it a steroid?

Hi LadyDi24

Fasenra is an add on medication that is given as an injection for patients with severe eosinophilic asthma.

Here is the Patient Information link that gives a specific description

I am in denial that I have moderate asthma as I don’t think I have ever had an attack. I just get really sick when I get sick. It takes weeks before I stop symptoms. I know I am allergic to a lot. So I would turn down a trial knowing others need it more. I am unaware of new treatments.

I am unaware of any new treatments for asthma bi wish they would put more into finding new ones.

When I lived in the uk I helped on clinical trials now I live in Florida I would love to continue with them.

I think everything helps towards this terrible disease.

I don't know of anything new, other than Xolair. I do that.

No, I just don’t like the thought of not knowing what I’m taking. I have too many strange side effects with almost anything. So I’ll leave that to someone else. With a stronger constitution than mine.
