Biologics for Asthma & Eczema
Biologics have revolutionized the treatment landscape for both asthma and atopic dermatitis (eczema), offering new hope for patients who struggle with these conditions. Specifically designed to target the underlying causes of these diseases, biologics are medications created from living organisms or their components. They work by modulating the immune system to reduce inflammation and control symptoms.
For asthma, biologics like omalizumab (Xolair), mepolizumab (Nucala), benralizumab (Fasenra), and dupilumab (Dupixent) have shown remarkable efficacy in managing severe, uncontrolled asthma. These medications target specific pathways in the immune system, reducing exacerbations and improving overall lung function.
In the realm of atopic dermatitis, Dupixent has emerged as a groundbreaking biologic. It's specifically approved for moderate to severe cases of atopic dermatitis and has shown significant success in reducing itching, inflammation, and the severity of skin lesions.
