Research and clinical trials

Research into eosinophilic asthma is expanding. Eosinophilic asthma is sometimes also called eos asthma, e-asthma, or type 2 asthma. Some areas of study include:

Immune system.

A better understanding of the immune system’s role in eos asthma could help scientists develop treatments.

Genetic icon

Genetic factors.

The genes involved with eos asthma can help provide clues as to how the condition might be prevented.

Biomarker icon


Biomarkers are molecules such as genes, hormones or proteins. These can help doctors diagnose a disease. High counts of eosinophils in the blood are one possible biomarker for eos asthma. Biomarkers can help us predict which treatments might be more effective for a person who has eos asthma.

Clinical trials

Clinical trials for eos asthma are currently underway. Many of these studies focus on new medicines to control asthma symptoms.

There are many advantages to participating in a trial. One advantage is that you receive medical care from providers experienced with the condition. You also might have the chance to try new medicines that are being developed.
