Short of finding a cure, the best way to address this problem is to give people with asthma the resources they need to control their condition, as maintaining “asthma control improves quality of life, decreases medical expenditures, and increases productivity at work and school” [5].

Providing resources for children with asthma will require a great deal of research to determine the most effective approaches.

This review and evaluation of literature is designed to help better understand the factors leading to thunderstorm asthma, and highlight knowledge gaps that need to be filled to better predict and prevent the impact of future episodes.

Audience: Children Although the pulmonary tests used to diagnose asthma usually are ineffective for children under age five, children with the highest risk for deficits in lung function growth can display asthma symptoms before age three and as many as 50–80% of children with asthma develop symptoms before age five [1,6].

Consequently, children under age five are diagnosed using a combination of medical history, symptoms, physical examinations, perceived quality of life, and effects of therapeutic trials in managing symptoms [1,7].

Asthma is a chronic disease that causes inflammation in the airways of the lungs, with multifactorial pathophysiology.1 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, asthma affects an estimated 18.9 million adults and 7.1 million children.2 Asthma is a costly disease to treat; the economic burden on society, providers, and payers is substantial.

The total annual direct and indirect cost of asthma was billion (2009 dollars) in 2007.2 Despite advances in asthma care and management, asthma remains an unpredictable disease with profound public health implications.3 This underscores the need for improvements in the management and control of asthma.

Reslizumab (anti-IL-5) and du­pilumab (anti-IL-4) are 2 anti-IL agents being investigated.

In the first phase 3 trial of 953 adult and adolescent patients with moderate-to-severe eosinophilic asthma, results showed that monthly intravenous reslizumab significantly decreased asthma exacerbations ( 1.
