Lung function measures have been used extensively in clinical trials for asthma. However, clinical trials for biologics in asthma should have a different focus. AstraZeneca's current Phase IIb trial of tralokinumab has a primary endpoint of asthma exacerbations over 52 weeks.

Severe asthma remains a significant cause of mortality and morbidity and a portion of patients remain inadequately controlled despite combination treatment. Few innovations have been seen recently in asthma, despite significant research and numerous proposed targets. Still, strong investments continue, and novel therapies could reach the market
