Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Severe uncontrolled asthma is defined as asthma that remains insufficiently controlled despite receiving intensive asthma treatment after asthma diagnosis has been confirmed and considering comorbidities that may mimic asthma. The prevalence of severe uncontrolled asthma is estimated at 5% of all asthma cases. However, these patients account for more than half of total asthma expenditure, including direct and indirect costs. In this context, biological drugs have emerged as a promising option to address severe asthma. These medications target the specific immune system mechanisms involved in bronchial inflammation, providing a more precise and effective approach. By targeting specific cytokines and immune cells, biologics can help reduce symptoms, improve lung function, and decrease the frequency of exacerbations in patients with severe asthma. Although this therapeutic approach represents a significant advance, ongoing research and personalization of treatments are essential to optimize outcomes for people with this difficult respiratory condition.

A key theme of this Special Issue is the role of technology, particularly artificial intelligence (AI), telemedicine, big data, and bioinformatics, in transforming asthma care. The integration of these technologies is reshaping the management of asthma, enhancing diagnostic precision, personalizing treatment plans, and improving patient outcomes.

Overall, we aim for this Special Issue to serve as a comprehensive resource for clinicians, researchers, and policymakers, providing a multi-dimensional perspective on the latest trends in severe asthma management, with a particular focus on the role of technology and personalized treatment approaches.
