Asthma and Biologics 

from asthma.ca

“One of the newest developments for treatment of moderate to Severe Asthma is a group of medications called “biologics.” Each of these treatments is designed to target and block a particular part of your immune system involved in allergic reactions and asthma symptoms. Your doctor might consider using one of these medications if you still have severe asthma symptoms in spite of using your controller medications as directed. Biologics are an add-on option and do not replace your existing controller and reliever medications, although some people may eventually be able to reduce the dose of their inhaled or oral corticosteroid”

We produced for Asthma Canada in both English and French this 2 minute whiteboard animated video to explain to patients in simplied terms the overview of biologics and the potential for better control of their severe asthma.
