Asthma – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis: Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis – Adult Asthma (US) 2023

Two types of pharmacotherapy are used to treat adult asthma: rescue drugs and maintenance therapies. Rescue drugs are inhaled therapies (e.g., a SABA such as Teva’s ProAir HFA) that treat the acute symptoms of asthma via bronchodilation. Maintenance therapies are inhaled, oral, or biological drugs (e.g., a LABA/ICS such as GSK’s Advair or an anti-IL-5 agent such as AstraZeneca’s Fasenra) that are used to prevent exacerbations by targeting the underlying pathophysiology. Many adult patients receive several agents to treat their asthma. Although multiple well-established therapies are available for adult asthma, the market has seen the approval and launch of even more agents, including novel biologics (e.g., Regeneron / Sanofi’s Dupixent) and generic versions of the blockbuster inhaled drugs (e.g., albuterol sulfate and formoterol / budesonide). These launches have added treatment options and fueled more intense competition in this market.
