Do you have severe asthma?
Some corticosteroids are given through an inhaler (inhaled glucocorticosteroids), however, often, when asthma is more severe, they are given by mouth (oral corticosteroids).
Corticosteroids help to reduce the inflammation in the airways. However, with long-term use, corticosteroids can cause side effects.
The VOCALS Clinical Trial will see if an investigational medicine, called lebrikizumab can help patients take lower doses of oral corticosteroids while still keeping control of their asthma.
