AstraZeneca Reveals New Research on Respiratory & Immune Diseases

Must Read

May 2024- AstraZeneca will showcase new clinical and real-world data across its leading inhaled, biologic and early science respiratory portfolio at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) International Conference, in San Diego, CA from 17 to 22 May 2024. The company will present 59 abstracts, including 12 late-breaking posters, with a focus on unmet needs in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), severe asthma and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), as well as other chronic respiratory diseases.

Sharon Barr, Ph.D, Executive Vice President, BioPharmaceuticals R&D, AstraZeneca, said: “Data at ATS demonstrate our progress in advancing a new wave of innovative treatments, moving beyond symptom control into disease modification, remission and one day, potentially cure. Today, COPD patients have highly limited options if their disease is uncontrolled on inhaled medicines. We’re encouraged by the results of the COURSE Phase IIa data exploring tezepelumab in a broad population of COPD patients beyond those with baseline blood eosinophils above 300 cells/μL and look forward to these data being presented at the ATS International Conference.”

COPD remains one of the leading causes of death globally, and at ATS we will present important real-world evidence reinforcing the need to address cardiopulmonary risk in COPD as well as the potential for our inhaled triple therapy Breztri to reduce this risk.”
