Severe asthma is often defined as a separate phenotype of asthma. Different combinations of biological molecules are markers in precise diagnosis of asthma. Type of airway inflammation is the main feature of the disease as well as severity is the main goal in treatment. IgE is produced continuously to maintain constant levels in the blood. Many peripheral blood cells express IgE receptors. Efforts to assess regulation of IgE dependent network among patients treated with biologic therapy may contribute to both better understanding of the disease and choosing right therapy option and dosage regimen.
