Abstract

The perspectives for new therapies in asthma and COPD are quite different. In asthma we already have relatively cheap and safe therapies that are effective in controlling the disease, so that the need for new treatments is somewhat limited. However, important advances can still be made to improve longterm therapy for patients with more severe persistent asthma, as well asacute therapy for emergency exacerbations of asthma, while in the future there is the prospect of allergen immunotherapy causing disease modificationand even cure. In COPD, however, both bronchodilator and antiinflammatory therapy is less effective, and there are currently no therapies that reducethe progression of the disease. Driven by the urgent need for new therapies, a shift in resources from discovery of drugs for asthma to COPD is taking place.
