BI Analyst Briefing: Allergy & Asthma Expert Discussion
Bloomberg Intelligence and inThought Research are hosting an expert discussion to delve into recent clinical data and use of novel agents to treat moderate/severe atopic dermatitis, asthma, allergies etc. We will also aim to dig deep into the mechanisms and merits of IL-4, IL-5, IL-13, IL-33, TSLP, JAK, etc, and reflect on our experts’ use of Dupixent in their practice.
We will also discuss relevant data and use of novel hereditary angioedema agents if time permits.
