Adult asthma is treated using two types of pharmacotherapy: rescue therapy to treat acute symptoms via bronchodilation (e.g., a SABA) and maintenance therapy to prevent exacerbations by targeting underlying pathophysiology (e.g., a LABA/ICS, such as GSK’s Advair or AstraZeneca’s Symbicort); most adult asthma patients receive multiple agents to treat their condition. Despite the availability of multiple well-established therapies, in the last couple of years the adult asthma treatment landscape has witnessed the approval and launch of additional agents, including salmeterol / fluticasone generics and novel biological drugs (e.g., Regeneron / Sanofi’s Dupixent, GSK’s Nucala). These events have added more treatment options and fueled competition in this market.
