Eosinophilic Asthma Treatment Market: Overview

Asthma associated with high level of eosinophils (white blood cells) is known as eosinophilic asthma. Patients with this form of asthma suffer from inflamed airways, which are blocked by fluid and mucus. They also experience spasms that cause difficulty in breathing. Eosinophilic asthma is characterized by abnormally high levels of eosinophils in the blood, affecting sinuses, nasal passage, and the lower airways. The condition is found to be common among people aged between 25 and 35.

Eosinophilic Asthma Treatment Market: Key Trends

The global eosinophilic asthma treatment market is projected to witness strong growth during the forecast period. This is attributed to increase in the number of regulatory approvals in developed countries, rise in prevalence of asthma, surge in demand for biologic therapies such as monoclonal antibodies & small molecule inhibitors, and increase in awareness about available treatment options for eosinophilic asthma. In October 2018, Sanofi received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Dupixent (dupilumab), indicated for moderate-to-severe asthma in individuals aged 12 years and older, with an eosinophilic phenotype or with oral corticosteroid-dependent asthma.
